  • Depression is more than one brief moment of sadness when something goes wrong, it’s being sad when everything is going right…
  • Depression is the best documented problem in our world, but the least discussed.

If you find yourself dreading the walk in your door knowing you’re going to be greeted with piles of unopened mail, closets that you don’t dare open for fear of the contents inside, the apathy of spending money you shouldn’t because you can’t find stuff or making a fast food stop on the way home because you can’t even think about what’s for dinner….we are here to tell you, WE CAN HELP YOU FIND A BETTER WAY!!!

Celebrity Friday!

Morgan Freeman has been one of my favorite actors for quite a while. Ever since seeing him in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider, I have always pictured him as Alex Cross in the Alex Cross series by James Patterson!

He has been around a while and has done SO much! He has been in over 90 films and tv roles and has won numerous awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006.

And then I saw this clip of him on the tonight show…oh my! 🙂

A great idea  for something to do this weekend would be to get some school shopping done!  🙂  I took my soon-to-be-kindergartener to Target tonight and got her supplies!  She was so excited!  Next up will be school uniforms! 🙂  Target is the best with having everything SOOO super organized!  Love it!!

Wake up!

Within the past year I have become involved with learning about human trafficking. I have been moved to learn more and somehow get involved either before I finish school or during…so when I came across this article by Huffpost Women, I wanted to share…this is an ugly problem society often ignores…it’s time we wake up.

The Psychology of your future self

Dan Gilbert:  Why do we make decisions that our future selves regret?

  • Interesting how children seem to change by the minute and our parents seem to change by the year.
  • Do you still like the same music or people that you did 10 years ago?
  • “Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they’re finished”
