Quittin’ Time

From the time we’re little kids joining our first sports teams, we’re taught that “quitting” is a bad word. This is reiterated throughout our lives.  If you stop playing soccer, you’re a quitter.  If you drop a class in college, you’re a quitter.  If you end a relationship, you’re a quitter.

Happy Father’s Day! It’s that time again…and since I did a post for Mother’s Day, it only seemed fair to write one for Dad’s day. But that’s not the reason I did it, of course: it just so happens that both of my parents have really good advice and memorable sayings. And, they’re two of […]

Mom-isms: Advice from My Mother

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Even though there’s only one day technically dedicated to these rock stars, we really should be acknowledging them every damn minute of every day.
