WORDS TO LIVE BY

This past Saturday I stood in my parents kitchen talking with my mom. We were discussing unhappiness and why sometimes life can be tougher than it is enjoyable. My mom and I are one in the same when it comes to our philosophy on life. It should be fun more often than it sucks! Being an ambitious guy, I tend to get life out of whack by pursuing, working non-stop, and getting caught up on minutiae. My mom and I…

Redefine Success. Or live your life as a failure.

What is "true" success? What just popped into your mind? Unfortunately I'll bet you 20 bucks that what just flashed through your subconscious were images of the "trappings of success" but had little or nothing to do with your own success.

In addition to making a really cool costume, and going door to door looking for candy, I got my favorite dinner, some gifts, and cake!
