    That is all I can do.

    One hour, minute at a time. Ive been asked where I see myself in 5 years and it's horrible to think - but I cant say cos I cant be sure. I cant think that far ahead. Hard for anyone. But that would be too realistic for people who ask. They just want positive answers like I will...

    All too often we get caught up in the waves of

    the sea that carried yesterday away, or the untold events that will unfold tomorrow. For now, in this present moment, I stop, think, and listen. I'm reminded to take life one day at a time. By worrying so much on tasks that are out of our grasps we keep ourselves chained and...
