2016.


In 1348 the Black Death swept across Europe and killed a third of the population. In 1939, World War II would begin and last for 6 grueling years. In 2007, Britney Spears shaved her head and got a few illy contrived tattoos. These were all years that people deemed “the worst of our time.” Okay, […]

Don’t Take On Other People’s Shit


I talk a lot about surrounding yourself with positive people – not letting other people ripple your waters and if they do; to keep paddling on. I realize that this isn’t always easy, because it’s just not realistic. We don’t always get a choice of who we are in the company of and even if […]
