But, at the season’s end, many of these same coaches and players will say good-bye to their team they have put so much blood, sweat and time into. My question is what will they miss the most?
In a relationship with someone, would you rather have “Quality” or “Quantity”? Research shows that quality gives is us the best chance at finding true happiness, while quantity leads to the least amount of short term heart ache. So, while quantity avoids some pain right now, quality rewards us with long-term happiness
Countless of people have spent imaginable amount of hours pondering the importance of the relationship on one’s happiness, and here is what some of them had to say:
Nancy Ragan was put to rest at the Ragan Library in California, and much has been said about her leading up to the burial.
