I Am Nerdy Enough to Find This Super Interesting

Albert Stern

I cannot help but find this kind of thing incredibly interesting. This is a breakdown of the devices used to read albertwstern.com

The biggest thing this has taught me is to think about how the site looks on the phone more. When I write blog posts I always check how they look on my laptop. But a full 2/3rds of the page views to this site are on mobile phones. I ought to be double checking how things look on the phone! 

Big, big thank you to everyone who has ever stopped by and read what I have been posting. 

Remain Thankful

Albert Stern

Lately, a number of events have occurred to remind me to remain thankful for my life. 

It is all too easy to forget how amazing it is to be alive. Simply to breathe, feel, think, and share is truly a gift. 

Only a handful of weeks ago, in the US, we celebrated Thanksgiving. It is January now and the holiday season has past. The decorations are all put away for another year. But, I ought not need days off and a parade to remember. 

The room I am writing in is a mess. I have three different places to go. I need to get the oil changed in my car. There is always more email. 

Yet, there is a sunbeam shining through the curtains. In the light, dust traces a lazy dance. In the slow movement there is a clear whisper, "Drink the day in. Notice everything! Do not take any of it for granted." 

I will remain thankful. 

I do it. My friends do it. My clients do it. Students in my class do it.

I am guilty of saying "sorry" when I mean "thank you". I have no idea when I started doing it. There are moments that start to get awkward and this habit kicks in. I say, "I'm sorry." In these moments, I really ought to be saying "Thank you". 

I do it. My friends do it. My clients do it. Students in my class do it. After awhile we all become numb to it and stop hearing it. But our words are powerful, particularly when we speak about ourselves. I want to be clear and only apologize when I mean to and not when I mean to say "thank you." 

I came across this cartoon recently. It has really stuck with me. It has made me catch myself when I find myself almost apologizing when I mean to say "Thank you".
