The Benefits of Self-Authoring

I write a journal with personal reflections since I’m 7.

The Subtle Art of Dealing with People

“A drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gall” I don´t remember who said that brilliant phrase, but I have treasured it in my mind for more years that I can remember.
