Who Do You Want to Become?

For my post today I want to simply ask you a question:

Who do you want to become?

Hold on…let that questions sink in for a bit. Take a little time to think about it.

What Makes You Happy?

When I was growing up I always wanted to be a professional athlete.

Finding Happiness Every Day

I’m back at the Colectivo Coffee Cafe again for the second day in a row to get some work done.

The Lakefront location of this cafe is in the historic Milwaukee River Flushing Station – a building that has been around since 1888.

It is definitely a building to marvel at with its exposed brick, tall ceilings, and unique design features, not to mention its location right on Lake Michigan.

I’m a sucker for interesting design and architecture and I’ll drive the extra 20 minutes for that aspect of the Colectivo Cafe alone. Continue reading

Embracing This Endless Wisconsin Winter

So, we just got another snowstorm in Wisconsin.

I, like many of my fellow Wisconsinites, am sick of winter.

Sure, it is cool when there is snow around Christmas time – it looks pretty, it’s festive, you can go sledding, snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, and it’s all fine and dandy.

However, that feeling does not last – at least not for me. Continue reading

It’s Your Life, What Will You Do With It?

This gallery contains 1 photo.

This is one of the 6 or 7 quotes I have up on my wall in my bedroom and I look at it basically everyday.

It sounds simple enough, but we really don’t spend enough time thinking about what we actually want in our lives – not some dream of our parents, our friends, or anybody else, but we want.

Do I think that there is just one thing I want to do for the rest of my life? No, I think there are many things and that is the beauty of it – we can decided what we want – it is our choice not anybody else’s. Continue reading
