6am, the alarm on my phone plays its upbeat jingle, it’s called Over the Horizon yet I don’t feel like that. Motivation to pull myself out of bed will do for the moment. Continue reading “How am I going to make someone’s life better today?”
If there is one type of attribute I despise in a person it is a lack of humility.
But it is inevitable in life that we will encounter braggers on a regular basis.
