For a long time I had been feeling frustrated and unfulfilled artistically, mainly because I’m not as successful as I want to be yet. And if I’m honest, I was allowing my emotions of frustration to surpass and trip up my efforts for progression. It’s hard to be at odds within yourself and expect momentum to happen. It doesn’t.
When was the last time you were lost?
The all time favorite game that every adult knows to play and that every baby loves. Haris loves this game, she even likes to hold the cover up over her face and hide. It’s quite cute and lots of fun…but actually I learned something.

I had been allowing my day job (the school) to cross the line into other specified time.
When I was little, I had dreams of being in the olympics, you should’ve seen my landing, arch back, and bow to the judges. My Dad even took the swings off of our swing set so I could practice. In that gymnastics gym, I learned two life lessons from not being allowed to say the word “can’t,” and from falling off the high beam.
It’s been said there will never be a revolution in America, because we’re all too comfortable. How are comfortable are you? Sure you may want more money in your bank account, or to have or do, this or that. But are you too comfortable to change? Or maybe to scared? So who are you?
