Love of Music

Growing up I’ve always had a love of music. Before I could talk, you could witness me singing melodies in my crib. I looked forward to the year in elementary school when we got to pick an instrument and was devastated when I switched to a school that didn’t have a music program the year… Read More Love of Music

A Whole New Me

This title is a complete exaggeration to me because a whole new me doesn’t exist. Yet, do you ever wake up and feel something just click? In a way, it’s like our hair growing.

Usually winning is clearly defined. In sports, it is the team with more points at the end of the game or the person that crosses the finish line first. However, this week I was thinking about the less clearly defined “wins” in life. The ones that involve power struggles. These wins can involve self-sacrifice or… Read More Winning?
