Hello Life Lessons Blog visitors, old and new!
I have finally returned to work on this website after 4+ years. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in that time. I’ve experienced some amazing wins, and some crushing defeats. All in all, I have learned many more life lessons along the way.
I have grown as a person, and as a writer, since the last time I… Continue reading
As human beings we are alike in many ways. Yet for all of our similarities, no two people are exactly the same. Even identical twins end up with different life experiences, either by twists of fate or because of their own choices.
