If I were to tell you that to truly move forward in your life, all you had to do was move the ugly parked car in front of you, would you move it?
Most would say Duh! Of Course! How silly! But most of us do not move, no matter what. We don’t see that dirty car in our path that keeps us stuck in the mud of life.

I still think of it as, "What do I want to be when I grow up?" :-) This is not been an easy task. For me, there are days when…Continue

It's the 1 year anniversary of me getting fired from my job, 1 year of me trying to make a go at working for myself and 1 year of me asking for help in supporting my family. I wish I could say this last year has been one of the best for me, but then I'd be lying.
Every year at my review I'd try to have a list of accomplishments to show my supervisor that I was worthy of an increase in pay and responsibility. It was a way of making sure that my compensation was equal to the work I…
Last winter was a pretty rough year for Atlantans weather-wise. Unless you live in a cave, you probably heard about Atlanta's Snow-pocalypse 2014. Motorists were stranded in cars for hours while others…Continue
I started a project recently that consisted of going through 2 storage areas to clean out what is no longer needed and to add memories to the memory boxes now that the school year is over. What a process! You drag everything out to get to a box and then have all the other…Continue

A father took his son to the circus and as they walked towards the big top they saw the elephants and they were being held by only a rope tied to their leg. The son looked at his father and asked how such a piece of rope could hold a large elephant.
"Well," he said, "when they are very young and much smaller they use the same size rope to tie them and that age it's enough to hold them. As they grow up, the elephants believe that they cannot break the rope so they never try to break…Continue
