    I feel like my experience reshaped how I'm

    responding to the world around me, somewhat for the better, somewhat not. I'm trying to workout each day as I hear the endorphan increase can help adjust low or cranky moods. Trying to take my stressful or low days five minutes at a time. Reminding myself to stop and smell the...

    I used to think commitment was like a promise;

    something you can break, say "sorry", and forget about it the next day. But then I fell in love. I made a promise on February 27th 2013 to never love anyone more than Alex. Back then I made a million promises, and broke around half of them (but who doesn't? "I won't be late, I...

    I Just Saw the Movie "Rudy"

    It's old - 1993 But I'd never seen it before.  It was amazing to see a story of such determination.  I dont know if I could have kept at it, but he did, and made a difference in the life of his teammates. If you havent seen it before I recommend it. Never give up...
