You can’t help but notice the glut of anti-aging products on the market.  Nor can you ignore the flood of how to look younger tips and tricks.  Why is society so obsessed with looking younger?  Why are we so afraid of aging? I don’t…

What if you knew you would die tomorrow?

Last year I had a medical freak out which turned out to be nothing.  But it got me to thinking.  What if I did die tomorrow – what would I be doing today?  We all know that we are not guaranteed a tomorrow, so…
