I Quit Smoking

As I get closer to my 40th birthday I have been locked in an ongoing battle with myself to live a healthier lifestyle. It remains the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life but I know I’m moving in the right direction because recently I quit smoking. Granted, it wasn’t a decision I went into willfully. I was forced to… Read more →

To Your Health!

As I get older I realize the importance of having good health both mentally and physically. Good mental health is imperative for living a fulfilled life, as is being in good physical health. No one wants to live a life that’s dictated by pills and limitations yet many of us have ailments waiting for us that are beyond our control.… Read more →

Monday’s Motivation

What You Gonna Do? I have a very low tolerance for bullshit. And as I get older my tolerance drops lower than it was the day before.

Earlier this week I was spazzing about how I’m completely broke until next Friday. And believe me, on Monday I had moments of utter despair followed by worry and doubt on how I was going to make it. Tuesday and Wednesday were good, but I had the same moments of fear in my mind. And then it hit me; The… Read more →
