Even when you feel it’s impossible.
Even when you’re confident you’ll not succeed.
Even when you fall FLAT on your face and eat the dirt.

Bask in the light, capture the moments.

Some days are dark, dreary, and discouraging. We tend to focus on those days, inevitably throwing ourselves little pity parties over how hard and challenging our lot in life has been. To be sure, life can, does and will again be difficult, it’s part of the human condition to face and endure many struggles.  Why […]

MAKE IT COUNT.

You know, most people out there work pretty hard. I bet you do. I bet you work pretty hard. I bet you’re not the type to sit around and do nothing, to sleep in for no reason everyday, and to get by with the least possible and not get fired. I think most of us […]

Enjoy the simply mysteries

You don’t have to have it all figured out you know. You don’t have to have all the answers all the time. Life is complex, there’s a lot out there that you simply can’t explain, you simply can’t predict, and you’ll never understand. That’s ok. It’s ok, to not have everything figured out, in fact, it’s […]
