When you can’t breathe, nothing else matters.

You’ve heard that title somewhere before, however, I have lived that title for the past 33 years of my life. It has been fun. That was sarcasm by the way. My battle has been with asthma, and a chronic one at that even at the age that I am at now. I do exercise,...

WWYD? Ethics, work and positive cultivation

It’s no myth that, unfortunately even in the United States that the people up top push the people that are lower on the financial pole. It’s upsetting that men in this country tend to covet the power of labeling themselves as CEO, or successful...

A post I will absolutely hate writing

I think too much sometimes, or perhaps I simply over think things. I thought about looking up quotes, sites, and other resources to plug into this blog post to make it seem more relevant than me simply writing my thoughts. Sometimes, I tend to forget that this url,...

What Some People Call: Baby Making Music
