    Over a decade ago, I created a list of soft rules or things I wanted to live by. I wanted the list to be a guideline for how I’d deal with life, people, and experiences. Anyway, I checked out my old blog from 2009 and found the list. I updated it, so it will be more applicable to where my life is currently at. Here it goes: 1. If you want to understand a person, do not listen to what…

    Good Advice I've been in this world for more than 26 years now, and I have already been offered a lot of wise words from not necessarily wise people.

This is so true. When you climb the ladder of success, you serve more…

It takes two to tango. When two people break up, it’s never just one person’s fault. It always takes two to reach the point when you cannot take things any further.

When I was 21, I decided to grab a pen and a piece of paper, and I wrote down the rules that I lived by. Well, I wouldn’t really call them rules. I think they more like GUIDELINES. Whenever I start to question my existence,…
