How to Create More Time in Your Life

I am currently reading a book about spiritual development, and one section of the last chapter has stuck with me. I truly cannot get it out of my head and I think that I know why. It’s with me because it’s something that I have not mastered yet: creating margins.  See, I have worked on…

Lessons From My Summer Job

You thought this would be about food, right? Well, no . . . sort of. Just keep reading. I always wanted a “cool” job for the summer. When I was a teen and looking for my first summer job, I was hoping that I could get one at a great clothing store. I could see…
