When the Ego Divides Your Character

Read More

Honesty, a character trait that each and every one of us has, yet the value placed on it varies on an individual basis. There are people in this world who will lie, cheat and steal as if it is second nature, these people lack virtues.

Read More

As I continue this journey we call life, I can’t help but to stop and look back at my path and evaluate the moments that have lead me to where I am today.

Many of us have shifted away from our chance to living out our passions and desires, life’s full potential, due to past paradigms…

Does Age Really Matter?

Read More

When it comes down to relationships, what role does age really play a part? Well, I have to conclude from my own personal experience, that age does matter. My last relationship was with a man 16 years my senior, and needless to say, it didn’t work out. I think when you decide to date someone outside the 10 year age gap the relationship is vulnerable to generational differences. At most times,…

Living Life Without Overthinking It

Read More

Too often I witness friends over-analyzing situations, and sometimes I am guilty of it too, but I try to be aware of my thoughts and not let my mind take over.
