Are You Willing to Change?

I love how change occurs in my life. So slightly, so incrementally – at least most of the time – that I don’t even realize it and yet part of me always expects change to happen overnight. “This scale can’t possibly be right.

Small Acts of Kindness go a long way

Small Acts of Kindness go a long way

In “Day 18” of Don’t Be a Cow! we talk about simple, small acts of kindness. Often we think of being kind or generous as something HUGE. Think Philanthropy or Anonymous donations that fund a museum.

Don’t Stop Now; You Are, Oh, So Close!

I have always found it amazing, all the fine lines life that has to offer. What do I mean by fine lines? Well, let me explain. But, before I do let me say that to truly appreciate this blog you need to keep an open mind, and do not take things too literal. The fine line between two points. So, […]

What makes two things great together?

What makes two things great together?
