Can’t stop? Correction – WON’T stop!

The above picture/quote is from James Clear, author of the book Atomic Habits. Much like the picture at the end of this post – there is a lot more to life than just saying “yes” to everything.

Boss vs. Leader

The 16th Second

I recently watched a very well articulated speech by a young man, who was the Valedictorian of his graduating class (presuming high school). He brought up something that I thought was especially relevant to me (and probably many others) right now. If you don’t feel like watching the video, essentially he speaks about how he […]

Little Boxes

Recently, I was thrown a bit of a curve ball, which in turn landed me in a situation I’m not all too familiar with…being “the other woman.” Who knew?
