Parental Development

I believe being a good parent is one of the more challenging aspects of personal development one can face. Most of us are thrust into this role without any special training or knowledge on how to be a good parent. Certainly it’s not something we typically learn in school, no matter what degrees and certifications we have. Perhaps a few …

Tell Everyone of Good Things to Come

If I was a psychic or a fortune-teller, I would tell everyone of good things to come Never once utter a word of misery, sickness, bad luck or misfortune For people who go to psychics or fortune-tellers need to hear good things and be given hope.
