Home Renos Coming My Way Soon! Reconstructuring my Temple.

When I initially began to craft today’s post I started off with the insanity of not being able to sleep last night because of my weight. (Seriously?) Yes, I got up at 3am and weighed myself. Listen, this is definitely not something I do, but out of nowhere, I pulled out the scale and was … Continue reading

The State of Being Happy vs Happiness – Those Who Walk Away From Omelas

Happiness can be so relative, it’s a matter of perspective. The world was changing and suddenly the meaning of life was much more significant.
