But then again? And again? And again? Whoever said “follow your heart” gave the worst advice EVER and we keep listening to it! [Read more…]
Okay, I turned 47 (yes, 47—what? That’s not old!) yesterday and I’ve certainly learned, or realized, a lot more than 47 things in my 47 years. But, as I was reflecting on my life and some of my lessons, or realizations, these 47 things easily came to mind randomly. See how many resonate with you. [Read more…]
