Bogota, Colombia No offence to ‘old people’ but when I hear the words walking tour my mind immediately goes to old people, or over enthusiastic adults trying to get their kids take some interest in the history of the city they are exploring.

Top 11 tips for a positive attitude!

I think i’ve always (at least MOST of the time) been a very positive person, you know the cup is always half full sort of shiz. But it wasn’t until I first became ill that I really focused on this. Even if your choice of actions is limited, your choices of attitude are not.   …

It’s Not OK

It’s Not OK
