    All the right words, in all the wrong places

    Can we open our eyes? We talk about being more authentic, our mental health and being able to talk to each other, and the importance of community, but I’ve noticed that we can be just as judgmental about who we share a smile with – especially when the person seems different than our norm. It still feels a little selfish to me… and don’t get me wrong, I’m talking about everyone else. I’m far from perfect here too, but I am challenging myself with this thought too.

    I love this quote from Albert Einstein! There is a proverbs that says, “as a man thinks, so is he.” I have been studying a lot about the thoughts that enter our minds, and how they can impact our lives. Take a look how Google define the meaning of imagination: Isn’t it amazing. The ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful. Hmm… what can I imagine for the character in my new up and coming online story. That’s right folks; I’m starting an online short, so that you can get to see me write AND get involved in shaping the story too. Today I’m looking for a perfect UK location to set this…
