From inspirited to inspiring.

May 28, 2012


Inspiration to me, boils down to learning.  We learn from those who inspire us, and we teach those who are inspired by us.  We emulate those who inspire us, even if just in a tiny way, in their attitude or their habits, or their way of thinking.  We like what we see, we do it […]

Gallbladders and becoming overweight.

Feed the good wolf

January 9, 2012


Self belief and positivity has always been a bit of a struggle for me. I’ve had teachers, career counselors, my parents, my manager and friends comment about my lack of self belief.
