Improve Your Environment; Improve Your Life.

  Do you notice how different you feel when you are on vacation versus when you are at home? Many may seek rest and relaxation away from home because home may not really  ring on a feel of relaxation and rest. Most of us are on the grind. Whether it be a nine to five…

Jamaican Breakfast and a Book.

Feasting on a big Jamaican breakfast and soaking up some knowledge from a good book? Is there any better way to usher in the New Year? No, I don’t think so. We were blessed with the ability to spend the last few days of 2018 in Montego Bay, Jamaica. I say blessed because it has…

A Day in Washington, D.C. Smithsonian Style.

The nation’s capital has always been a long time favorite of mine. I don’t go to gawk at the White House nor do I go to Pledge allegiance to any particular president in office but what I do go to DC for is something that I believe should move us all to visit. I’m an…

I believe that when we hear that someone has a “habit” we often gravitate to thinking in the negative. We tend to think of obsessive drinking, smoking, lying, etc. Stuff the great books advises us…

You Cannot Fail

You know the adage, if you could do anything without fear of failure, what would you do? The reality of it is you would think in a state of the “sky’s the limit.” You would have no inhibitions because you would have no fear.  I know, this state of mind is not one that most…
