Self Improvement

Are You Unfinished?

I believe we’re incomplete, unfinished individuals. ~Carlos Fuentes There is a theory of human development which states we are born Tabula Rasa, blank slates ready to gain knowledge through experience and perception…that is…a person is born empty and nurtured into personality independent of their nature. Anyone with more than one child knows this theory is […]

A Gift to Myself

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. ~Dr. Seuss, I Can Read WIth My Eyes Shut!   Last year, when I received an iPad as a gift from my kids, little did I know that it would become an almost constant […]
