  • Humility

  • Posted by Melissa Hunt on June 21, 2011 | Topics: Personal Growth
  • I have been doing some reading recently on a myriad of topics, and humility is one of them.

  • The January Blues

  • January is a month of both promise and reality.  It begins a New Year and we resolve to do the things that we somehow forgot or just didn’t want to do the previous year.  And this is the year we’ll really get serious about… you fill in the blank.  But the reality is this: we … Continue reading “The January Blues”
