By definition, and for all practical reason, only… Continue reading Priority is a Singular Word, Not Plural

The Sun Is Always Shining

The sun is always shining. To be in the light simply depends on where we're standing. Being in the dark does not and IS NOT permanent. When we keep moving, we move through the dark times, and can once again step into the light that illuminates our path and provides optimism and hope. We can never get to where we want to be by standing where we are now. The earth maintains balance by altering sunlight and darkness. It must in order to exist. The same is true for life. Taking time to observer nature can help us to reconnect with this truth! We have the capability to make it through if we continue to believe.

Not many people seemed content, or had any curiosity or interest in expanding themselves. They definitely weren't thriving. They were just getting by, just making… Continue reading Seeking a Like-Minded Friend in Times of Personal Change
