The Little Things are Big Things

A few months ago, I was following a link online that was raising money for childhood cancers. In the description, millions of dollars were already raised in a matter of weeks, surpassing the end goal by far. I had a moment of hesitation, whether or not I should donate. They already raised more than they had set out to raise. And what contribution would my $20, or even $100, be in the mist of the multi-million dollar sum? Continue reading


Don’t Waste Your Life Waiting for the Weekend


Today is hump day (Wednesday). It’s one of those days that don’t exactly excite anyone, but it’s the “after hump day” that everyone looks forward to. Why? Because we passed the middle of the week. We managed to trudge up that glorious hill that is Monday and Tuesday, and on the other side is a direct downhill roll to Friday. Alas, the weekend! Continue reading

Time and Money | Quote Review


“The most dangerous risk of all — the risk of spending your life not doing what you want, on the bet that you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.” – Randy Komisar

Time and money. Those definitely fall into a category of their own. No matter what, there’s always somehow a lack of time and money to do what we want. But maybe that isn’t the biggest problem. We have a funny perception of time and money. We convince ourselves that some time in the future well beyond our sight, we will be richer and better off.

I realize that people speak of “years” as if it is a “place”, like they are individual houses that we step in and out of. eg: 2008 was a bad year, let’s never go there again! or I can’t wait until 2014 is over so we can move on to 2015! When we enter the threshold of a “new house”, we welcome ourselves, and we get a false uplifting that this “place” is somehow different and better. But a year is merely a passage of time, and time cannot be categorized as houses we can move out of. The truth is, New Year’s day is just another tomorrow. Hoping for a better tomorrow is very misleading because tomorrow never comes. Continue reading
