Lest we lose our focus, we should not lose too much weight on our shoulders. 😉Share
Ignorance is bliss? Or put less succinctly, not knowing can be quite empowering if done correctly.Share
…how old we are, the years ahead are potentially better than the years behind. 🙂Share

Perception is a key ingredient to knowing where the time goes. —R-U.S.Share
