Being Unique

I think one of the most significant parts of being human is that we are the same and we are unique.  Our sameness makes larger ideas such as healthcare and government easy enough to generalize from a top view.  For example: colds and bacterial illnesses can be understood and treated within predictive parameters.  Rules can …

Focus

Focus is a tricky thing.  Mix past event memories and a current situation that is troubling you and you can find yourself losing hope.  Refuse to live in reality and you can miss opportunities and make poor choices.  Although it sounds counterproductive, focusing on positive thoughts can completely change you life.  You are only in …
