edwincolequote1

How do you chose which challenges to accept?  I've been thinking a lot about goals and things I would like to do with my life. I'll be honest, though.

...that "I'm sorry..." and "Thank you..." are two very underused phrases....that ice cream cures all....in screwing up. I think the biggest "aha" moments in life come from the biggest mistakes....in always being polite. In "yes, please" and "no, thank you."...in smiling even when you don't feel like it....in love....in having a vice. Or two. Or three......in the power … [Read more...]
