And I’m feelin’ good…

I’m not rich. I’m happy. Maybe I’m way off base here but the money I do have leads me to believe that money can make you feel better, for a time, but if you don’t care for you…inside…nothing in this world will make you feel better about yourself. We hear this all the time. It’sContinue reading “And I’m feelin’ good…”

What’s The Point?
