Changes Crossroad Sign

2016 is a year to remember for ages to come. Donald Trump, the billionaire business man is running for the office of President of the United States of America and is currently leading the Republican party for the nomination. Hillary Clinton, who many believe unfit to lead, is in a tight race with Bernie Sanders, an older senator who is closer to a socialist than a democrat.

Why is this? Why does this problem seem to be as old as time itself? Could it be that this issue is at the heart of what is wrong with society today? Have we traveled so far down the road called ‘My Way’ that we can’t seem to find our way back to ‘His Way’, so we have given up trying? Read more of this post

Lose the Map and Find Your Way

alternate-routeHave you ever been driving down the road, going no where in particular, when out of nowhere you decide to turn left on a street you’ve never been down before, just to see where it goes? Maybe you’ve been out for a walk and for no real reason, you decide to walk in the opposite direction than what you normally  do? We have all had moments in our lives; those radical, way-out, paradigm altering moments, where we have wondered what it would be like to step out of the rut we call ‘daily life’ and do things completely different.
