Does Our Need For Security Hold Us Back?

Before I get started, let me say I am in no way shape of form knocking those who work a nine to five, who find joy sitting in an office or where ever, who truly love what they are doing. It is amazing feeling to get paid for doing something you love… I’m writing this mainly for those who feel the exact opposite. The ones who have so much magic resting at the tip of their fingers but allow fear of failure to hold them back.

Everyone knows January 1st is the start of the New Year, But I’ve always believed your Birthday is the Part 2 of that celebration. A New Year just for you.

The above video is the recap of my first time trying the wheatgrass shot. Excuse the quality of the video as I recorded this on my phone and used a regular app to semi edit it.

When first deciding to see what the wheatgrass hype was all about , the first opinions that were offered to me was that the taste would immediately turn me off, but to look past it. (more…)

Hurry Up And Wait: What’s The Rush?

hurry up

 

Most of us have heard the term Hurry Up And Wait but for those who haven’t, Its a coined military term where the army rushes you to get up, get uniformed, and get somewhere, only for you to wait once you get there.

Sometimes its used to describe a situation where you’re rushing to get some place or do something, but once you get there you realize you still have to wait or certain necessary steps have been missed, now the task can’t be completed, and you still have to wait. (more…)
