Ready, Set, Go!

(First let me give a big shout out to all of you beautiful people who responded to my questions. I am working on a new project and all of the input is a great help! THANK YOU! I appreciate it!) Okay people, start your engines! It’s the morning and you are ready to get your day started. What is the first thing you do? If you’re like most people you don’t even think about it.

How Do You Feel?

Do you feel lucky, happy, positive and grateful? If not, then how do you feel? Luck is a funny word. I’ve always thought of it as good fortune. To me, bad luck is an oxymoron. But regardless, being that I’m a bit Irish and with St. Patrick’s Day upon us I thought it a good topic to talk about. As a side note, did you know that the “Luck of the Irish” can be interpreted either way? Some say they were lucky and some say they were unlucky. But as always it’s all about how you interpret anything that makes...
