TEACH YOUR CHILDREN If you want your child to be kind, they have to be taught. Children follow by example, and every single bad habit you do, they can see, and will most likely copy it as well. Your little mini-me is a sponge, soaking up everything you do, and copying you exactly. There is…Read more
Pick your Mood!
Yes, you are capable of picking your mood, just like you can pick your nose. It can be done, (even if you have fat fingers! Ha ha) Rude joking aside, it really is up to you to pick your mood. You can’t leave it up to fate or chance, or how you feel when you…Read more
Remove Toxic Facebook Friends
As they say, life is short. Some of us are literally short (yup, me!) but we are all given a number of days to live out on earth. We need to make the most of them, and that means we need to remove toxic people out of our lives. We simply can’t afford to waste…Read more
Men NEED to be Wanted and Loved
