Seeing the Good in the Bad

I read an article last week that really caught my attention.  It’s titled 12 Signs You’re Doing Much Better Than You Think You Are by Anna Bashedly.  Of all these 12 things I can either relate to them personally or have seen others be affected by it.  They all helped me see a different a perspective, shedding light on something that really didn’t have much light before.

Will That Hunk of Metal Make Me Happy?

One thing about me is that I really like cars, trucks, ATVs, anything with a motor really.  They’ve always intrigued me since I was a little kid.  Dad put me on a little 50cc Suzuki when I was about 5 years old and there was no looking back after that. Continue reading
