    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    Some Days

    Some days I really just feel bad and I don't know how to snap out of it.  I don't even know if there is a way to snap out of it.  It might be something that I have to come out of gradually.  Anyway, there are days where I don't like things about myself.  For...
