Make keywords from your past work for you.

Curse of the Keywords Past

Keywords that I used in the beginning of my journey continue to haunt my website today. The year that I launched my first blog, I had no idea what I was doing or what direction I was going. I knew that I wanted to write, and so I wrote. Surfing around the internet led me […]

Adjustments allow you to dodge bullets.

Learning to Adjust to Life

Boxes of stuff fill my office, front porch and back porch crying out to be put away. Dirty piles of laundry cover the living room floor demanding to be washed. Used dishes overflow the sink screaming to be cleaned just so they can be used again in the next round of cooking. You have to […]
