    A Second Chance.

    I was always the smart kid. I was told that I was oddly mature at a young age. My Mom used to say that I must have been an old lady who was too hard headed to die so she came back as a baby. I was a 4.0 student who never had to study for tests. I was extremely creative and was...

    Character is like a tree

    and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

    I started reading this book entitled The Brain

    Fog Fix. There is nothing in this book that I have not heard before, or rather there is nothing in it that has not been said at me before in one ear and out the other or said in my general vicinity and I knew I should do it eventually. Well, this time I am listening. I am going...

    How The Mind Works

    If there is a problem it's our perception.

    Solutions are never necessary because there are no problems, only our perception makes it seem so, and only our minds make our perceptions seem real. That's hard to see in a world that celebrates and rewards the finding and solving of the problem. When you decide that you will...

    The saying that "A mind is a terrable thing to waste" is such a true statement.  I learned a long time ago and practice learning something new every day.  I feel that it's a wasted day when I don't learn something new.
