My sister got married this past weekend and it was an amazing celebration for two of the people who are in my top 20 list of couples I love the most. In case you were wondering Kim and Kanye are number one with Morgan Freeman and his step granddaughter close on their heels at number two.
Weddings are an amazing time to reflect on the life of another person, where they have come from, what they mean to others close to them, and who they have become. This type of reflection is very important in our lives as it allows us to take stock of who we have become and where we are headed.

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” ~ Marie Curie
We’ve all heard it before: Follow your passions. Live your dream. Do what you love. But is this really the right advice? I’m starting to think that it’s not. My change of attitude is mainly due to a book I am currently reading called “So Good They Can’t Ignore You” by Cal Newport. I recommend that you read it yourself.
