  • Some things you just can’t plan

    I’ve always been a planner. I have a precise schedule in my head, a physical copy in a spiral-bound book and several alarms set in my phone. I guess you could call it a control problem, but I would call it preparedness.

    I plan down to the minute of my day.

    This is when I have to be at work. This is when I eat. This is when I go to the gym. This is when I go to sleep.

    I even plan in my personal life. A phone call goes out to my mom at 5 p.m., my best friend at 6 p.m., dinner with friends at 7 p.m., favorite show at 8 p.m.

  • It takes a village

    I don’t have children, and I sure don’t envy today’s parents. 

  • Which debt should I pay off first?

    By Zack Van Zant

     The average American household has $98,315 in debt. If you remove all of the people who are debt-free, the average household with debt has $132,086 in debt (Nerd Wallet). 

  • True, false, yes, no, maybe

  • A grateful heart equals joy

    I have heard people often make the following remarks:

    • “Why do I feel joyful so seldom?”

    • “Something always nags at feeling joyful.  I wonder ‘what next?’ or ‘maybe it won’t last.’”

  • A year down the road

    By Ginger Lumpkin

     As I look back over the summer (a statement I should not have to make until September, but school starts ridiculously early this year), I am struck by how far I have come in the past 12 months.
