Happy Thanksgiving

I am thankful for having a loving family, a wonderful fiancee and great friends.  I am thankful for having a warm apartment to call home, with food in the cupboards. I am thankful for having the opportunity to think and write about my ideas and passions.

*Happy Thanksgiving*

Weathering the Storm

I have been blogging a lot less frequently.  The reason is that I have not felt like writing about self improvement.  I have not felt like actively doing anything in a while.  It is hard to strive for improvement when you feel like you are just getting by day to day.

Life can wear you down when you let it.  And sometimes it feels like you don't really have a choice in the matter.  Pretty much everything that this blog has revolved around is that we all have a choice in who we want to be and what type of life we want to lead.  In theory this is a great idea and I truly do believe it.  But I also recognize that in practice we don't always have the time or energy for our normal lives.  In these difficult times improving and choosing to be better is an afterthought.

How you handle the difficult times can define who you are.  Sometimes weathering the storm is just the best option.
