Wednesday Wisdom: The Value of Hard Work

ww post  Wednesday Wisdom:  The Value of Hard Work


Words that ring very true to me right now. Sometimes i think the value of hard work and good work ethic are undervalued. In my opinion true work ethic and hard work are two of the most important and best values you can have today. No one should expect things to just happen and then complain when they don’t happen. Not happy with your current situation? Well then do something about it! Hustle!

I’ll be honest, I did have to learn the hard way and learn a few “life lessons” so to speak before I realized how true the above is. I’ll never take it for granted again!  :)

32 Years Young!


BIRTHDAY 32 Years Young!


Well….I guess it’s official now. I”m old. 32 years old today folks! I’m currently in Dallas, TX right now on a work trip. Away from friends and family for my birthday, but, pretty cool to be spending it in such an awesome city! I’ve always loved that my birthday also falls on Memorial Day weekend; so fun. So, guess I’ll go take myself out for dinner and glass of champagne. The celebrating will begin when I arrive home though!
