“Doing Nothing”

It’s a challenge to simply sit. So much easier to check emails, call a friend, or get going on this day’s plans. Life has taught me that if I’m not doing something… I’m doing nothing. Experience keeps challenging that old belief. When I wake up for the 4:00 a.m....

This is Your Life

“This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you are looking for love, start doing things you love. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things. Get lost, so you can find yourself. Live your dream. Wear your...

Giving the Best of Ourselves
