What is my Purpose?

"What is my purpose?" is a universal question. Everyone on earth has probably asked this question at least one time in their lives. "What is my purpose?" is not a question with a simple answer.

Seven Steps to Sanity Saving Routines

Developing personal routines was a sanity saver for me. I used to cringe inwardly when I heard the word routine. To me, a routine was confining and boring. That is not what I wanted in my life.
