Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

I spent the morning reading blogs. I wanted to jot down my thoughts while they were still fresh.

First, growing up in an imperfect family presents a lot of challenges. Accepting imperfection for a perfectionist is hard. I'm harder on myself than I am on anybody else. I tell them "just do your best. It will be more than enough". The same does not hold true for me. I must get it perfect. I don't like pictures of myself because I will critique everything I see and I end...

Don't Deny Who You Are

Posted 07-22-2017 at 09:37 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

It's common knowledge that you can lie to yourself. But recently I've realized you can also perpetuate a false version of reality without actually lying. All you have to do is ignore the truth. Pretend it doesn't matter. Claim it's all water under the bridge.

A few years ago, I discovered I was habitually lying to myself. I thought in order to succeed and to be loved by others, I had to be perfect. And every time I made a mistake or did something embarrassing or tripped over my own...

I've known people who appear to be fairly content with their family lives. If I ever have my own family,...

Reality, Terrorism, and Motives: Half-Asleep Musings

Posted 06-16-2017 at 11:26 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Tonight the sky was mostly obscured by dark clouds, but in the middle of a huge block of cloud in the west, a chink remained open, showing a slice of the gold and pink sunset behind it. From that you could draw a cheesy Hallmark sentiment - "the sun's always there behind the clouds." But it's interesting to think about the fact that just because you can't see something doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
