Change: The Scariest Word You’ll Ever Embrace
I did a few shifts at the hospital recently. gasp One of my colleagues said he was always interested in writing but could never find the time. At some point, every writer in each level of the profession has heard someone say that they want to write but just can’t find the time. This is…
When we’re young, our daily lives are easy to take lightly and enjoy. Lots of experiences are new, and we don’t have much responsibility. Our biggest jobs are to learn and have fun.
