Something to say?

You are here and you have something to say. We all do. You might not think what you have to say is important, but it is. We need to hear it! What’s more, we want to hear it. Stop holding out on us and let’s hear what you have to say to the world. Seeing […]

Mistakes are sexy

You’ve probably heard that scars are sexy. Some psych students even ran an experiment and found it to be true enough. But why? Scars are sexy because they’re a sign that we’ve lived.

What if you had to live today forever?

We watched 50 First Dates last weekend.

How to predict the future

Not many people saw the pandemic coming. And nobody predicted what actually happened in 2020. Don’t believe anyone who says they know what’s going to happen in the future. At best, it’ll be a lucky guess. We can’t predict what happens to us, but we can decide what we do next. We always get to decide […]

It doesn’t matter what you do

If you woke up this morning with a big old task list weighing you to the bed, this might help shift that nasty beast. Just do one thing. It doesn’t matter what it is. It doesn’t even matter how well you do it! All that matters is that you take that one little small step. […]

The strangest secret

One of the great truths about life on this pretty little planet is so strange that it’s often spoken about in hushed tones and giggled whispers, behind cupped palms and heavy curtains. But as Earl Nightingale said, it really isn’t really a secret at all. Rhonda Byrne has recently popularized it as ‘The Secret.’ Dr. […]
