Somebody Thinks You’re Awesome… You Should, Too

Think back to the last time somebody paid you a really great compliment. How did you react or respond to that compliment? In my experience, many times, people respond by saying: “You’re too kind”, “No… you’re way too nice”, “It’s nothing, really”, etc. I hear it on almost a daily basis. I’m guilty of it, […]

Realize That You Are Memorable

I talk to people all the time who tell me that they don’t pay attention to the people around them, because nobody is paying attention to them either. They are convinced that the things they say and do go completely unnoticed, almost as though they are invisible. I think those people would be shocked to […]

If you wait patiently long enough, life has a way of getting back on track. This journey through life is full of all kinds of crazy detours, but you eventually find your way back to where you’re supposed to be. The past two and a half years of my life have been one giant detour, […]

Go For It

I’m at a point in my life right now where a lot of things are changing very quickly. Some things that I have been waiting a while for are starting to happen, and just as many random, unexpected things have come up, as well. Looking at the things I have ahead of me, I am […]
