So Here We Go...
So here we go…on to a new year. January is one of my favorite months. The feeling of renewal and rebirth that this season brings can be life-changing for so many. For others, especially as we get older, we get stuck back in our grooves. Why do people as they seem to get older find it tougher to reinvent...
Stick and Move...
Every day we have a choice to be a producer or a taker. To create or to consume, to be a negative or positive influence in your family, our community and our world.
