My first experience with traveling alone was in my 20s. I had just received a degree in comparative religion from the University of Colorado and exploring a mysterious land filled with thousands of gods and goddesses seemed like a great way to spend a few months.
We’ve all been there. We’re having a wonderful holiday making beautiful memories, but our bodies are just not cooperating. Indigestion, dehydration, and other digestive issues can put a damper on the best vacations…
Cruising is a great way to vacation, relax, and be pampered, all while enjoying a huge floating hotel, but not only that, compared to conventional travel. It also allows you to visit several places in a short period of time…

Everyone resists change… Change is very hard… Real change takes a long time…
We hear things like these all the time. Are they true? Well, maybe and maybe not. Like lots of things, “It depends.”
The question I hear most often when I’m talking with people who are in the middle of a major downsizing or are getting ready to downsize is, “How can I get rid of things that are very, very important to me?”
