I bet you work with these people

Whether you work to live, or live to work, it’s the nature of the beast to feel worn out, overworked and downright jaded some days after work. Especially when you feel like you are carrying a team’s worth of work all by yourself. Have you ever noticed some of your coworkers? I mean, really noticed them. […]

You just have to remember one thing…

Not everyone has the same heart as you. I’ve learned this lesson a few years ago. No matter what you do for someone, no matter how soft you touch someone’s heart, you can never expect to receive the same treatment. If you feel like you’re swimming oceans for people who wouldn’t swim a lake for […]

One vice and two hearts

Left to right, right to left…She shakes her head. Agony, pain, confusion; happy, numb, lucid. Her eyes, her bloodshot eyes are tired. She feels personally conflicted between self control and losing her greatest mind. Two hearts are leading the way, though his beats faster some days. Scary enough, one day is enough to slow down […]

Gravity is a b!tch

One of my favorite country star artists, Miranda Lambert, has a song called Gravity is a bitch. Her lyrics are phenomenal, they outline exactly what it’s like to get older. Gravity on earth plays a lot of different roles. It keeps our bodies standing upright on the ground, it usually returns any object down when […]

This entire week I have been contemplating cleaning my entire house top to bottom. Why? Well, because I don’t like living in filth, even my own! Normally I vacuum, wipe down counters, and mop. But this time I want to take it to a whole new level. I want to clean items in my household […]

You are smart, determined, ambitious and hardworking. Your heart is tired but your mind has a mission to achieve something; something […]
