Welcome

This is my personal & professional blog.  It's a place for me to think out loud and learn. I'll sometimes talk about things I don't understand as a way to begin to understand them. I'll often be wrong, short sighted, and unclear. When you see this happening, please point it out!

MITT

I love this documentary on Netflix.

  • I love Mormon families.  
    • 6 years before Mitt runs for President in 2008, he asks his whole family what they think.  They go around the room and discuss pros and cons.  I love this way of making decisions together.
    • Constant hugging.  Even brothers hugging brothers.
    • The family is big, full of love, communicates with each other, and support each other.
    • Mitt is dedicated to service.  He cleans up garbage in the hotel room balcony himself.
    • Praying all the time keeps you humble and grateful.
  • It's amazing Mitt is so naked in front of his kids.  He knows he'll likely lose and disappoint them.  And they're adult enough to understand it all.  But he does it anyway.  They even joke "We'll still love you even if you lose."
  • Mitt is a bad at running for President.  It's worse when you get to see behind the scenes.
    • He has no warmth.  He seems like a business automoton.  (I sometimes am like this!  Yikes!)
    • His kids keep saying "I wish the world could see our dad the way we see him."  They seem him as warm, genuine, full of love, a patriarch, comfortable in his own skin, not trying to be a better version of himself.  In the documentary, you see Mitt like this with his family but he never comes off that way to the rest of the world.
    • He's bland and no fun.
    • He's frigid.
    • Het gets too worked up, anxious.
  • I'm glad he ran for President.  I'm proud of him for doing it.  I hope he's proud of himself too and is happy he did it.  I hope his family feels this way too!
