Who are you?

You can think of a lot of words that describe you. When asked that question, a lot of people describe their work, or the titles they hold, like mom or wife, or student. However you decide to identify yourself, let it be your belief and not what someone else says. What happens when you really…

Oops, I did it again… another mistake

We need to face the absolute fact that no matter how good we think we are, we are never going to be perfect! (not here on earth, anyway). We need to own that! The worst thing we can do is swallow it and cover it, making a collection of bad things that we plan on…

Alone And Not Mad About It

When you are an introvert, people think something is wrong with you. Everyone loves a person that can work a crowd. Most people think to work in groups or on teams is the only way to find an answer to a problem. Are two heads really better than one? Is collaboration the only way of…

Curiosity Doesn’t Always Kill The Cat

I am curious about a lot of things. I want to learn as much as I possibly can before I leave this earth. I want to explore as many places and gain as much knowledge as I can. To me, that is the difference between living and just existing. We can make plans to do…
