Friday, December 30, 2011      3 comments

FIre... this is what I am gaining by becoming involved with Sparking. I had allowed my inner passions to cool down to almost nothing. I had lost my vision for what I wanted to accomplish in my lifetime. "Optimists realize they are responsible fo... Read more
