the Rhythm of Life

The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards. They either help us to become the best version of ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves. We become like our friends. No man becomes great on his own. No woman becomes great on her own. The people around them help to make them great.

We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose, and challenge us to become the best version of ourselves.

All parents are not saints, nor are they sinners, they were given few instructions to a book with a couple of the pages missing.

We are not all destined for greatness but it should be on our bucket list.

Being ‘gay’ used to mean feeling happy.  Somewhere along the way the meaning got lost in translation.

Being in a close knit family is quite a bit like being on a human trampoline.

All any of us truly have is the ‘precious present’.
