I watched a YouTube video a few moments ago. One inspired, courageous, individual made awesome points regarding bringing truth to some narrative.

The economy is not your opponent. Never let a recession slow you down. No politician stops you from doing anything. Stop blaming people, conditions and circumstances for your lot in life.

Do you live daily? I mean, really live? Or do you preserve life? Do you seize life by the horns or coast into the grave? Today, our governor here in New Jersey closed all state parks. Being completely unaware of the law – which went into effect while I was spending a lovely day in

Enjoy that featured image. I snapped this photo in Savusavu, Fiji. Me and my wife spent 4 months there in 2014. Genuinely, Savusavu is one of the most gorgeous places on earth.
