Life is what happens around you …

You know all those things you’ve always wanted to do? You should go do them.

All those things you’ve always wanted to do

People have a habit of putting things off to a future time. Especially those things they would love to do. They wait for that “perfect moment” when you will supposedly be less busy. Well, that time will never come. You will always be consumed by those small things that eventually consume your entire day and […]
