Live Life Now

I am constantly reminded to stop dwelling on petty things but to overlook most all things that come against you and focus on living life and giving back.  I was visiting with a friend of mine and he made a profound statement that is still sticking with me. He mentioned his friend went through a tough time with overcoming cancer. He had a new take on life as he walked through this life-threatening time.  It made him not dwell on the...

Don’t Forget to Recharge

Have you ever walked into work to realize that your phone is dead? In today’s modern age, it can be a terrible feeling. You review when you charged it last, search for a charger and an outlet and hope it can last the rest of the day. Just as it is necessary in these times to have your phone fully charged, we need to be charged up and ready for life.  I think many times we are barely ready for our days because of exhaustion due...

Life is Not Fair

“Life is not fair.” Have you heard this from your children before?  This statement is something I would hear often with young children.  I even have caught myself saying this as well.  Honestly, life does throw you curve balls and at times it seems totally unfair. You may work hard at a job everyday, then not get selected for a promotion you know you deserve. Or you may try to always be kind and make good decisions but it...
