There are two types of people…

There are two types of people in the world: 1 - Givers 2 - Takers 1 - Givers want to give. They enjoy the feeling of giving to others. Whether it is time, gifts, money, love... Givers seem to have an endless supply of whatever is asked of them. And if they do run out …

People watching…

I spend a lot of time commuting to and from work. A 35 mile drive in southern California traffic can take what seems like an eternity some days. Most of the time, it doesn't get to me. I crank up the music, dance in my car, make phone calls, (hands-free of course) etc. Today was …

When you give good you get good…

So the other day I had a small rant about getting what you give. It isn't only about the Debbie downer part of that saying that people should hear. You literally get what you give. Especially with the good. I'm human. Bad stuff happens to me just like everyone else. In the past, if anything …

I know I've been guilty of staying when I should …

Prove it…

The problem with words is how powerful or meaningless they can be. This is true in so many different situations. A story of strength through adversity can inspire strength in the weak. Words spoken on finding love or losing it can make one believe in love even if they haven't experienced it firsthand. Reading or …

Heartbreaker

I've been very lucky in life. I've found love almost as easily as I've given it. That being said, as many know, with the mountaintops of life come the valleys. Although I've loved much, I've also endured a lot of heartbreak. When my life takes a trip to the valleys it is easy to get …

A failed experiment to stop crying

Have you ever cried for enough time that you realize the amount of time you've been crying? That happened to me today. I cried for so long that I looked at the clock, did the math and thought, "oh my God why can't I stop crying?" *Note: it took longer than expected to do the …
