Welcome back! I hope you all enjoyed your Christmases with family and friends. What did I get for Christmas? A full week off from work (i.e. time with hubs and lots of books). Thank you, Lord! Aside from the illness I picked up (on Christmas Eve no less), I spent a good chunk of time … More When Did Art Become an Equation?

Also known as the “I’ll be happy when” or the “grass is always greener” life, the WIGT style of thinking is the equivalent of mental poison. We allow possibilities for the future and lifestyles and material things to flood our conscious so completely, that we cease to exist in our own world anymore. We’re lost to the … More Living a “When I get there…” Life

It’s hard, isn’t it? Having everything you know function one way for so long and then suddenly you have to move, a loved one passes away, your friend betrays you, you lose your job; I mean, the list is literally endless.
