“Likes” Are A Dime A Dozen

Views on the other hand, are golden.

I just wanted to throw this out there because Kat from Kat’s Observations brought this little nugget of wisdom to my attention in a comment. So thank you Kat!

If there’s anything on my blog that means a lot to me, besides the content I write and my fellow bloggers, it’s the impact my posts have. Getting “likes” really is a dime a dozen to me.

The 48 Laws of Power: A Book That Should Be Made Into A Series On Netflix

I’ve written about this book before as it’s a very informative book on machiavellianism and because I absolutely love it!

Whether you feel stuck in a rut, you just experienced a break up, you hate your job, your life is falling apart, you feel like life is trotting along on the shitty road full of pot holes, or you’re freezing in your Jeep on a rainy day (like me), you just have to laugh.

Never Lose Sight of What You Truly Value

I’m sure we’ve all experienced a time in our lives when life is on the up and up and then out of nowhere, something comes along to roundhouse kick us towards rock bottom. It’s as if our future felt real promising and then skewed right over towards feeling betrayed in some way.

This has happened to me several times in my life. Most of them were considered very minor blows, like the time I ended up becoming broke and homeless. I was able to dust myself off and bounce back quickly. However, this past year, not so much, even when I had more than enough money and my own fancy apartment.
