“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” — Dr. Wayne Dyer (Tick Tock Thursday #2)

I have really been battling with implementing my ideas about how I could create time. For instance, getting up early was easier to do then because my brain was working overtime anyway and I just couldn't sleep. Once my brain got over itself I couldn't get myself out of bed anymore to write. I am… Continue reading “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” — Dr. Wayne Dyer (Tick Tock Thursday #2)

Changes and Travels

It's been a hectic start to the year!  My poor brain has moments when it just feels like it wants to shut down.  So I gave it a break from blogging and a few other endeavours for fear of overloading it.  Time to hit the road again so welcome back and enjoy the ride :)… Continue reading Changes and Travels

5 things I would change if I had to had to go back into time

I was looking at my skin in the mirror the other day and thanking God for the good genes that He has blessed me with.  Unfortunately, genetics is not enough to keep my skin looking good. It definitely lays a great foundation though! 🙂  I haven't always looked after my skin. In fact, as with… Continue reading 5 things I would change if I had to had to go back into time
