Today’s Topic: Figuring out which direction to take in life
Life isn’t always straightforward and simple. There are times when we have to take a step back and see where our decisions, actions, and consequences of our choices will take us. Sometimes we realize only too late that we’ve chosen the wrong path, or that a pivotal change is needed in order to get our lives on what we consider to be the right track for us. It’s during these moments that we have to assess what’s really important to us to figure out where to go from there.

I was in my early teens at the time, and although the majority of my friends had WiFi in their houses, I was not so fortunate. With my flip phone and laptop, I made the most of my two weeks of freedom from tests and essays utilizing the notepad, word programs, and built-in games (side-note, I’m absolutely addicted to solitaire because of the hours I spent playing it on my first laptop!).
Today’s Topic: Why it’s important to take breaks in life
If you’re worried about how much time you have left in life, you might think that taking breaks is ultimately wasted time that could be spent being productive. Why sit around binging your favorite Netflix show or playing a video game or two when you could be working towards a goal, dream, or resolution? The answer is, quite simply, that as human beings we need to take breaks (both physically and mentally) in order to be productive.
Today’s Topic: How creativity differs from person to person
We’ve all seen or heard something in our lives that’s made us stop and think, “Why would a person ever make that?” Whether it’s a song filled with unnecessary profanity or a ridiculously detailed painting of genitalia, there is always some form of creativity behind every piece of original content.
