Mastering the moment in minutes…

  It only takes one. All too often, we think we have to have it all figured out. Our life planner ready, goals written in ink, with a busy calendar to match.

Please and thank you, for all the wrong reasons! Adult only though.

It did seem weird.  I'll admit. It was a big wave of the sincerest gratitude. I could see that he saw me by the way he went to the other side of the road and went much slower as I jogged by.

This is my “thing.” What is yours?

You could say it's my "thing." The Purpose of Purpose! Does your life have a purpose? YES! My passion is purpose.
