Life Lessons, HONY

The Quick Fix.

I just landed on this piece of advice, which I think is the best I’ve read today, very timely too. I’m an avid follower of ‘Humans of New York’, and it’s amazing how everyone you encounter either has an observation they’ve made or an experience they’re been through that makes them more aware of the…

Mirror, Life Lessons

Mirror Mirror On The Wall.

The other day, I posted a picture of me having a moment with the mirror. I knew one day I’ll be able to put it into perspective. Confession, I have many of those moments, mostly undocumented and for various reasons. To see if I look pretty and put together, to see that things are in…
