Zoom out…

I hate pictures other people take of me. Might seem crazy since I post a lot of pictures of myself but I get to control everything from how I’m posing to the angle. When I’m having fun and someone else is taking the pics it’s out of my control. It’s been an intense week of…

The measure of success

What does success mean to you? If we look around at others and judge ourselves by what we see of them we can really view ourselves as a failure. I watched an episode of Queer Eye where the guy said he felt like a failure when he compared himself to his siblings. He just ran…

What can you exclude?
