Even though they caught it very early, the jarring news upset me.

As I spoke with my mom, she brought up how it could’ve easily been her, another aunt, or even me. That even though I’m under 30, young women like […]

I am guilty of allowing movie marathons to distract me from getting things done. This weekend was no different as I spent a little time watching The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

While I did not watch the entire film, I caught the “poisonous fog” scene where Katniss, Peeta, and Finnick suffer from ghastly […]

A Dish of Ice Cream

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.

I believe in studying success.

From athletes to teachers, CEOs, and musicians – I’ve learned that success leaves clues.

Although these individuals may come from different backgrounds, what unifies them are their habits. Take a look:
