                    Is chivalry dead? This quote fell in line with my blog earlier this week and struck a chord.  Today’s society blurs the lines of chivalry with many people mistaking it for misogyny, which is a dislike or prejudice against women.  The virtues and ideals of chivalry stand regardless of who you are with or their gender.  If more people adopted these attitudes we could get back to a society where common decency is much more common again.

    “Its better to wear out than rust out”-David J. Schwartz

    This quote stood out to me on my flight into Vegas for several reasons.  Too often I hear people tell me how badly they want to see a place or experience  something, only to immediately follow it with all of their best excuses.

    I am certainly leaning on the worn out side at the moment.  When I booked this flight I was working early mornings and had expected to travel to the airport the night before for a good night’s sleep and a 7 A.M. departure.   Things changed,  as things often do and I found myself working to midnight,  driving four hours to the airport and hopping two flights with absolutely no sleep.

    I knew of this change about two weeks ago and I’m certain most people would have cancelled the trip all together.   If I had, I wonder how long and how many more excuses it would take to get back here… on a final decent into Las Vegas!

    Stay tuned for how it goes and please comment back what this quote brings to mind for you in this moment.
