Chocolate Strawberry Chip Ice Cream

Search any recipe on the internet and you’re bound to get bombarded with descriptors like “THE BEST ____ you’ll ever have” or “The World’s Greatest ____ recipe” or even “Perfect.”

This post is about human life and the concept of how I define it. I do what I believe is right and in the interest of all human life. I hope this can be deduced from my blog that this is who I am – a life activist.

Finding Joy in Everyday Life

We spend A LOT of time waiting. It’s almost like we’re spending the majority of our time waiting for something to happen – for that Friday to come, for something better to come along, for vacation, for the weekend.

You can spend your entire life, saying things like β€œI’ll be happy when I [fill in the blank]β€œ. You can spend the rest of your life waiting to start living. Or you can start now. Because your life is now.
