Every Day is An Opportunity to Reinvent Yourself

If you think about it, life is all about movement. Rocks don’t move by themselves. Trees barely move. Animals move, although they tend to be directed by instinct more than conscious thought. Only humans, so far as we know, have the ability to plan complex actions. Simply put, we are the only species on this planet that can reinvent itself. Read More
