Lifehack #1 – The Grand Reset

Recent actions by others in my life have caused me to do a whole lot of introspection lately.  Having gone through a terrifying time with my Mother’s Battle with Cancer (so far so good – the surgery went well, she is home and on the mend in a big way) but now I am faced…

With all the radical changes that have been happening in my life lately, I figured that it was time to really take a hard look at what I want out of the 2nd half of my life (assuming I can make it to the ripe old age of 84).  The past year has laid out…
