Building a Life of Abundance

When I was a kid I thought we were well off. As a real young kid, like 4 and under probably, my dad was able to stay home with us. My mom worked but was always around in the summer. We got to go camping and to visit family. As I got a little olderContinue reading “Building a Life of Abundance”

Shifting to an Attitude of Gratitude

What does it mean to have an attitude of gratitude? To live life thankfully and humbly? These catch phrases pop up frequently this time of year on social media, on mugs, and fire place mantels all over the country. But what does it mean?

What Makes it the Happiest Place on Earth?

Do you know what my favorite job was? (If you work with me currently it’s my current employer; this post is over skip to the next, thanks!) It was running an drive-in, think old time A&W but without skates. I could have done that seriously forever. I honestly started out by volunteering there. When IContinue reading “What Makes it the Happiest Place on Earth?”
