Georgia Girl On My Mind

As a puppy, they seemed to love me, but soon they grew tired of my antics. They were going to have a new baby human and I grew too big for their home. So I was sent away to live with someone else. Then, my second home couldn’t keep me anymore…so I was sent back to my first family.

They had wanted an English Bulldog for some time, and...

I woke up, and I made a sale during the night. I wasn’t actively promoting in my sleep, but a dog bed was still purchased.

The Impossibility of Hurdling Your Mental Block

Even if you are physically capable of doing something, and you know that you have that ability, your mind can hold you back. In any sport you play, “the mental game” is always discussed. When there is a minute left on the clock and you physically cannot give anymore, you tap into that part of your brain and kick it into gear. You push harder than you ever thought you could in that last 60-seconds. After sprinting around that oval, and you are coming down the last 100-meter straight away, you think that you have spent all of your...
