    Make Life Simple

    When we were young life was easier, right? I know sometimes it seems that way. But the truth is life still is easy. It always will be. The only difference is we’re older, and the older we get, the more we complicate things for ourselves. You see, when we were young we saw...

    If I could go back in time even

    for a minute it would be June 14, 2005. My wife that recently passed away and I were sitting in the sands of Myrtle Beach celebrating our 4th Anniversary. I would just stare into her beautiful eyes, run my fingers through her gorgeous red hair, and let her know how much I really...

    I would...to do things i stopped doing to

    please others, or because they were not what i was expected to do; and on the other hand to not do those i did for the same reason. Not original at all. I guess we all do the same mistake.

    and change who it was with I would go back in time and change that. His dad doesn't even spend time with him when it's supposed to be his days. He leaves our son with his mom while he hangs out with friends and gets high. Maybe having a child so young was a mistake. But how can...

    I Wonder

    If I could go back in time would I be able to right the wrongs of the past? Could I make a difference in more peoples' lives? Would I be able to make these changes without impacting the present? I wonder.

    Of course. I am such a history geek - it was my major. I would love to venture back to early Victorian America, King Henry VIII's scary days, and even just to the 60s to see what life was like.

    It's frustrating to see them struggle to be happy or act happy, and they used to be so spectacular and fun. As a kid, I never had the guts because I was too partial to how it might make them feel. Now I know firsthand that things like depression, anxiety, and fear shouldn't be...
