Despite being one of the nation’s Founding Fathers and second President of the United States of America during 1797 – 1801, John Adams is yet to take his spot in the limelight among all the other well-known, great men of the country. Perhaps because his presidency is sandwiched between that of two of the most famous and controversial presidents in history — George Washington and Thomas Jefferson — thus making his administration seem quite unremarkable.

Thirteen ways to bring more love, hope, and unity in the world

I haven’t had very much inspiration to write lately. I’ve pretty much just been doing life. Eating, sleeping and working. I joined the gym, the one I went to as a student so long ago. I started doing yoga with an old friend who I wrote songs with several years ago. It hasn’t all been mundane. With everything that has been going on in the world, it’s hard not to feel sad, numb or fearful.

never set goals without doing these four things first

Recently, when I was in the locker room at work, a coworker asked me how did I really get in shape. For those of you that don’t know I recently dropped about 25lbs and competed in my first bikini competition. You want to know what I said? My response was weeks of hard work.
