Life Can Change In An Instant

When you wake up in the morning, you never know what life may hold for you. I remember one morning when my girls were in elementary school, the news was on while we were getting ready for the day, and the anchors were talking about car accidents. I remember thinking, “I wonder how people would … Read more

Reflection

As I’ve grown older, I’ve started to live my life more peacefully. Granted, 38 is not old but it’s old enough to know better.

Failure Is Good

Why do we try so hard to avoid failure? Failure shows us that we’ve had the courage to try something. I think that if you avoid failure, you avoid taking action in your life. I try to accept that failure is a part of the experience and the journey. I try to learn from it, … Read more
