Maybe you were out with friends or family this weekend? At a dinner, or perhaps a party, or to the park? It was fun, wasn’t it? At least when your friends weren’t busy posing and taking perfect pictures, then spending time adding filters and cool hashtags, and checking for likes. It’s not the end of the world, but it is kind of annoying when you’re having a good time....more
What are you going through that you think is going to kill you- literally? What problem are you facing that you believe is going to do you in? Are you where I am, ready to throw in the towel? Have you waived the white flag to life while chanting, “I surrender”? Well, whoever said, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” wasn’t kidding....more
Life is fast. It happens so quickly that there are weeks and months when you look back which are just a blur. How could I possibly have children in their thirties. Wasn’t it only yesterday that I was their age?...more
