Yesterday I was talking to a friend, and we started debating about the history of the United States. When we finished, I decided to send him a simple list of ten facts that many people have wrong.
If you want to check it, here is the list of curious facts about the United States; you might like to find out if you have them right. And in the process, save yourself some searching time and probably adjust your “Factometer.”
1 — Washington was not the first president. There were 14 more Continental Presidents, 1. Peyton Randolph, 2. Arthur Henry Middleton…
Most people won’t make a change in their lives, mostly because of fear, so they try to make unrealistic plans, also known as the “not-yet approach.” They want to succeed but are afraid of failing, changing their way of thinking, finding happiness in the present, and not waiting for a future to make them happy.
Start with little things like having a walk, read something you want, take a break, or talk to someone, and create beautiful moments.
Look for activities that…
I took my Pitbull to the vet for a follow-up visit after we spawn her. While we were waiting for the assistant to bring her back, the look of a black Labrador caught my attention. His black eyes expressed a deep and sad look.
Curiously, I asked the doctor what was wrong, and he told us that the dog was sick, and sadly the lab results showed no improvement. And the owner was considering the option to put him to sleep.
That’s when I understood why the look of that dog made an impression on me. …
We are becoming our worse nightmare. It is on the news every day, and unfortunately, we are getting used to acting as if we didn’t see it.
We might not like the word racism. And if you hate when someone calls you a racist, don’t argue. Instead, listen and learn what you do that makes you look like one.
It doesn’t matter the race, religion, origin, or sexual preference. There is an increasing number of Americans facing racism in the US.
But how deep is the problem today, and how to bring hope for our future generations to live without…
A simple way to effectively heal and transform your life
Do you feel that your month is longer than your paycheck, and no matter what you do, you never feel satisfied?
According to Jim Rohn, one of the most renowned authors and motivational speakers, in his book “Seven Strategies for Wealth & Happiness,” the answer is easy.
You have to learn how to balance your life and then share it with others.
Here is the way to do it:
The author bases his philosophy on mastering seven strategies. But first, let’s start with the basic definitions.
80/20 Rule.- Vilfredo Pareto was an Italian economist and sociologist born in 1848. He…

Editor-in-Chief of the Haven
Congratulations on your new assignment. You deserve it, for you are the most wonderful, caring, good-looking, smart, and amazing of all the editors on Medium, and I hope you remember what I just said the next time you check my work.
I wonder if the new job of editor-in-chief comes with a feathered warbonnet. Because in some places, the Chief Executive Officer never executes, the Chief Operating Officer never operates, and the Chief Information Officer is always clueless.
I want to…
During the pandemic, I’ve developed a close relationship with a wonderful, caring, and most protective partner. I call her Abi since her actual name; Agoraphobia, is too long and hard to pronounce.
Besides that, I’m starting at that age when you forget the most simple things, like some artist's name, how many Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan films there are, or to put your pants before a Zoom meeting.
Now Abi and I are very close, and even though she never leaves the house, like Willie Nelson’s song says, “She is always on my mind.”
Like the most jealous partner…
But it seems that Republicans don’t give a damn about them. They are more focused on their jobs or their donors than on solving your problems.
Families living in poverty need the stimulus checks as much as air and now are desperate to receive them in the mail.
Nevertheless, this seems irrelevant for the Republicans because every GOP member in the Senate voted against the bill. Since they all earn more than…
I was on the mall, trying to kill some time and get screwed by some store promotion which after you get home, you wonder what the hell you were thinking, and you feel like Cersei Lannister on her walk of shame, but instead of others throwing things at you, you sh*t yourself.
That’s why I stay away from the late-night infomercials, where you start your walk of shame weeks or months later, especially if you buy from Whish.com.
It was on that day when she came into my life, so sleek and elegant. She seemed a little show-off, demanding everything…
