What Happened To Your Dreams?

We all had dreams. No matter your age, there was a time 10, 20, or 30 years ago—or even longer! —when you had ideas about how you wanted your life to be.

Dreams about your career, your lifestyle, your legacy. Your ideas about who you were going to spend that life with, what the place you called “home” was going to look like.

Commitment is a personal decision to something: to lose weight, be a better parent, learn a language, take care of someone… whatever it is, you name it.

The Best Version of Yourself

My son went to basketball practice today for the first time in his life. All week he had been very excited about it. He was counting the days. Asking me every morning how many days were left until the practice meet.

It’s the Thought, Stupid!

Yesterday, I was listening to an interview with Dr. George Pransky in which he talked about relationships.
