Try it or trash it

Yesterday I read a blogpost by Jen Morris on her website Jen Morris Creative entitled What I’m reading this year: 17 books in 2017.  She realized that she has many inspirational books sitting unread on her shelves and she is aiming to do something about that.

Average No More

Life changing events are not always large. They can be small, seemingly insignificant things that would have no effect on others. They can be something another would forget within the hour. In High School I found out that my GPA was in the middle of my class. I don’t mean approximately.  Smack dab in the middle …

Bloom Where You Are and Let the Seeds Carry You Far…
