Here’s a cheap glass of wine. Where we’re going, you’ll need it.

I’ve got to tell you – I think you’ve picked a great time to get into the story game.

Inspiring The World

Hello world,

As a standard opening for a not so standard site, I would like you to evaluate yourself.

Do not just look in the mirror, at your family, your health, or your career; Rather, look inside.

Are you stuck in your own routine and the throws of life? Do you need have a light heart, still feel mildly immature at times, and have a deviant little man on your shoulder?

Stuck It TODay:

  • Indulge in the beauties of the world
  • Open your mind and your heart
  • Allow yourself to be daunted by passion rather than ritual
  • Motivate yourself as well as others
  • Inspire a better generation

By indulging in the beauties of the world we not only allow others to express themselves freely but we also enable ourselves to be expressed freely. Through an open mind and an open heart we can discover a burning passion for change. Illuminate the path to success by carrying the torch and bring others along with you! The world does not change all at once as a whole, but rather the change starts with us…

Do not look for change, rather encourage it and bring it forth though yourself.
