Hi! I’m Rob — continuous dreamer and seeker of inspiration to live my life to the fullest in all that I do. Throughout my life, I have always been a constant dream chaser and a deep thinker.

We measure time in years, months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds.
Time has a past — stop re-living its mistakes. Learn from them and move on.
Time has a future — it has yet to come, so don’t wish your present away by worrying about things that haven’t happened yet and may never.
Every fleeting moment is the present — be actively engaged and take the time to appreciate important people in your life.
