Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

“From the backstabbing co-worker to the meddling sister-in-law, you are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life. You can either give negativity power over your life or you can choose happiness instead. Take control and choose to focus on what is important in your life. Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life.”

: “If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway.”

“There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, and who always will. You get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix everything, but it’s not giving up. It’s realizing that you don’t need certain people and all of the drama that they bring. So don’t worry about the people in your past, there’s a reason why they didn’t make it into your future.”
