On Confidence in Yourself and The American Dream

Posted on October 24, 2011 at 7:18am 1 Comment

We all remember sitting in our history classes when we were young, probably in a circle inside the classroom for a group discussion, and talking about what the American Dream really was. Nobody volunteered to speak, of course, because that would be geekish, and nobody wants to be a geek. But looking back on it all now, have we as individuals lost sight of it all?



Each and every one of us has a different Dream. It deals with careers, spouses, houses, cars, pets, kids, toys, money,…

When can a kid pick his own damn hairstyle?!

     If there is one thing my wife and I disagree on, it's when our two boys(ages 7 and 4) can have some independence.
