The Dragonfly Effect

This morning was not, by many standards, a good day. I woke up exhausted, having spent the night tossing and turning, uncomfortable and restless. I snoozed for a bit, then woke up with a start, because now I was running late. Traffic was awful, making my commute last almost an hour. I got to the... Continue Reading →

The Heart of the Matter

Forgiveness. It's a word that's been on my mind for a couple of weeks now. I'd been contemplating whether or not I should write about it, and then Sunday morning, India Arie's cover of the song "Heart of the Matter" rolled through on Pandora, and then her song "Wings of Forgiveness" came on. So yeah, the question... Continue Reading →

What’s Your Vision?

What's your vision for 2015 and beyond? A friend of mine purchased a book for another friend, entitled, "One Word That Will Change Your Life", and, while I haven't read it (I plan to!), the idea is a novel one.

Humans are, inherently, creatures of habit. We take comfort in familiarity, in repetition.... Continue Reading →

You’re Not Hungry Enough

A good friend and I were having a very intense conversation late one night (much like the majority of our nightly convos), and this one was about careers and life goals. I was complaining about the lack of creativity in my corporate role, while he was proclaiming his anticipation of finally being able to do what... Continue Reading →

Reflections

Today, I've taken the time to reflect on what has occurred in my life over the past 365 days (and I urge you all to take a few moments between the partying to do the same). This past year has put me through many tests, of my resiliency, my loyalty, and my heart. I've learned... Continue Reading →

Here Comes the Sun

It's so easy to a bitter, sour person when things don't go your way. Maybe you didn't get that promotion you wanted, or they left you out of the equation yet again. Maybe your archenemy just drove by in the car you wanted, or purchased the house you thought you'd be able to buy. Unfortunately, bitterness won't improve... Continue Reading →
