Rather, it is becoming actively engaged in the creation of tomorrow, and discovering the purposes you were always meant for.

If I asked you to describe yourself, what would you say? Would you tell me your job title or refer to your relationships – husband, wife, son, daughter, friend?

How do you approach the world? Do you try to discover its meaning, or apply your own meaning to it? In this video, a man decides he is unhappy with his world, so he "remixes" it.

Beginning Again

Have you ever wanted to start life over again? I did. This is my story. I'm the third of four children. From all outward aspects, we were the average suburban family, living outside a large city in eastern Canada. But we were not a perfect family - we had our "hidden secrets," and our "we don't ever talk about that" situations. What people...
