Last week, the cold tried to hurt my face. There’s a walkway I cross in the morning between the parking garage and my office building; for these 10 seconds I hate everything! I am grateful to live in Dallas, where we are now back to a few days of reprieve, of 50 or 61* F to gather some fortitude before the next very temporary cold spell. We survive with understanding ‘this too shall pass.’ I bought a balloon, but in yesterday’s warmth and distracted passenger conversation, I opened up the sunroof while driving and it flew away.

A prime example of constructively harnessing any fear…   Very detailed info graphic. The Where and the Why. The Deadliest Countries for Journalist Metaphorically speaking, on the topic. Objects Exploding Out of Light Bulbs Boom!

We are all here with infinite purposes. Are we using it to serve us or deplete us? What is the internet doing to your brain? This is short and sensical. But practically speaking, a lot of us on the internet are using it to market ourselves and run our businesses; we are a whole lot of varied entrepreneurs. The most important thing IS our health, and self-employeed people really need to know our options regarding health insurance. Even large companies are opting out of covering their employees under the new healthcare system, politics aside. This post is the most thorough lay-down for you. Every single day people inspire me. These people are the exact opposite of the ones making excuses. We … Read More
