Am I Happy?

If you’re a weirdo anything like me then you probably ponder over this question whenever you get alone with your own thoughts which is probably one of the most loaded questions ever. Truthfully, I have no idea how to actually answer the above question because I’m just not sure if I even know for myself….

Rejection Is Redirection

Life for the past year has been far from superb, filled with lots of rejection from a multitude of sources – at a certain point, you kinda get used to it and no, that’s not a bad thing. Yvonne loves to say that each rejection is just a hidden blessing. Michael & Vickie love reminding…

The Art of Crying
