The Paradox of Choice

Imagine you go to dinner at In-N-Out. Their menu is comprised of relatively few options (burgers, fries, shakes) and has some possible variation but you have both choice, and limitation. Now imagine you go to dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. The menu there is a (literal) book with multiple pages. You can choose from steak, […]

Integrity

Becoming the person we want to be is tough in and of itself, but it is even more difficult and frustrating if we embark on that journey without a solid idea of who that person is, what traits they embody, the lifestyle they lead or the things that matter to them. One facet of the […]

A Mother’s Love

**Credit to a thread by @IamKiraJ (Kira J) on Twitter for inspiring this post. Check her full post out on FB or Twitter.
