What I Mean When I Say

“I Love Winter”

I might be writing this now that the weather has crawled above freezing but that doesn't change that I love winter. And that many people look at me like I'm crazy when I say that. I love winter.

Into rewriting a deleted post.  Jokes aside, we do ask ourselves this question a lot. At some point or another in our lives, we are bound to stumble across this question. Errands, work/school, responsibilities snag our time and what they leave laziness and procrastination eat up. What's left? A sad image of us scratching our… Continue reading Where Does The Time Go?

Enjoy Your Life

Everything you need to know is going to be in this very first paragraph. Enjoy your life. Not because life is short. Not because you're supposed to.
