“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.” ― C. JoyBell C.

"I am in competition with no one. I run my own race. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone, in any way, shape or form. I just aim to improve, to be better than I was before. That’s me and I am free.” ~ Jenny G. Perry
One of the biggest mistakes I’ve seen people make in trying to get ahead in business is to have this attitude. Because I have a MBA, 20 years’ experience, my Dad owns the company, etc., I should already be running the place. This attitude won’t Read more [...]

Instead of picking them to later turn into some yummy jam, jelly or wine, I just popped them in my mouth. I savored the red little gems as they burst open in my mouth. There was something deeply satisfying in partaking of the last Read more [...]
"The Universe is not stingy. We are. Some of us have very stingy souls. Perhaps not in how we treat others - our family, friends, and those less fortunate -- but in how we treat ourselves.
