    Because It Matters!!!

    The decision to become a better person is or can be the most important decision that you can make. I realize that life can be so much simpler if you focus on making someone elses day or making the world a better place. You will begin to notice that life has more to...

    Change

    The time for change has come. I ended a seven year relationship with a very bad boyfriend who I now realized manipulated and abused me to the point, I had no self-confidence and was honestly contemplating suicide. The heart break still hurts. I miss him like crazy, but I would...
