    So Much Growth

    This site is my proof of that. Making me truly look at myself, who I am, what I've done, and putting it down somewhere real. Not so anybody else can see, but just so I can see. And i'm actually a little proud of who I see. I used to live in a broken home with a drug addict...

    Success

    For me success can’t be measured by the credit limit on my credit cards. Nor can it be measured by the amount of cash in my wallet. It isn’t about the number of material things that we kill ourselves to own, and then leave them to waste away once we find the bigger and better...

    Still Learning

    Just when I think I really know myself, a situation comes up that is a bit foreign to my way of thinking.  I usually am pretty level headed and take life as it comes.  Take time to think things through before I react as this keeps me on an even keel but I was...
