Quit chasing unicorns and grow up!

We’ve all heard and probably even said “If I knew then what I know now………” Sure, we can all look back and see things that we would do differently. If you’re like me, you probably even can recall someone telling you from their own experience that you shouldn’t do this or that at the timeContinue reading “Quit chasing unicorns and grow up!”

Don’t judge me!

Don’t judge me by my red cup. I have seen the same internet meme many times after the so called Red Cup “controversy”.  I use quotation marks because I only saw the backlash against the so called controversy.

Heart, Mind, and Soul

Circle of Friends

We began forming friendships almost from birth. We’ve all seen a baby or small child respond to our smiles and hellos.  It’s natural to want to be connected to someone and have friends.  We start building those friendships from an early age. We have siblings, cousins, and neighborhood kids. Then we start school and ourContinue reading “Circle of Friends”
