A Reason for the Season

“Only hang around people that are positive and make you feel good.  Anybody who doesn’t make you feel good, kick them to the curb.  And the earlier you start in your life, the better.  The minute anybody makes you feel weird and non-included, or not supported- you know- either beat it or tell them toContinue reading “A Reason for the Season”

New Year, Same Old Me

I’m not going to vow to create a new me. That’s impossible… a waste of my time. I will not even try to recreate myself. Instead, I will better myself. I will grow. I will learn. I will laugh, cry, maybe punch a wall or two, and laugh more. I can’t be ME without everythingContinue reading “New Year, Same Old Me”

What are you Thankful for?

It’s a choice

I’m no angel. I have a past littered with what a lot of people would consider mistakes, but that I consider lessons. I am who I am because of each time I fell… and each time I picked myself up. If you learn from your past, there are no “mistakes”– only lessons. “The greater theContinue reading “It’s a choice”

You’ve Got To Do Your Own Growing

The easiest thing in the world to do is give up. As a society, we’re encouraged to “just quit” when our circumstances allow us to become unhappy.
