Why Are We So Critical Of Disney's Live Action Remakes?

Do we need to just accept the Disney live action remakes for what they are? I mean when we criticize them for not being fresh what are we really expecting? They are exactly what they set out to be, a remake of the original animation in a photo realistic way. This thought comes straight off the heels of Disney’s live action remake, Aladdin, being released into theaters.

From Big and Tall to Just Tall Pt. 1

The great Tony Stark once said, “part of the journey is the end”, and that’s where I am at in this blog. Weight loss can be an extremely challenging process. You can spend an eternity on a plateau that you never thought you would leave, or worse, get so stressed out by the thought of attempting that you never even start. But sometimes, all you need is a success story to fuel the fire for you to begin your journey… so that you can get to the end. This article may be a (not so) humble brag, but if it inspires you, then mission accomplished.

What Are You Watching On YouTube

Have you ever considered cutting cable? If so, what have you chosen to go with, Hulu? Netflix? Have you ever considered YouTube?  We are nowhere near making the decision to cut cable, but are interest to see what others have done. Cable costs are rising, which makes the incentive to cut bait all the more attractive. Beyond that, if you use YouTube what are you watching.

...And Now It's Time To Say Goodbye

Every now and again something happens that impacts you in a way you didn’t think it would. This could be anything from world event, sports championship, or celebrity death. What I am going to write about today falls under the celebrity death category. Which is strange because the writing was on the wall for this place for years given how people rely on the internet for shopping and finding the best deals these days.

A Little Self Reflection

Life is a crazy whirlwind that we choose to go through in a multitude of different ways. On the one hand, you can decide speed through everything or enjoy the moments as they come, you can live positively or negatively, focus on relationship building or possession, and the list goes on and on. In any of those cases, there are always points where we can sit back and reflect on the events that have shaped you as a person. That is where I am at this week, reflecting on several things and appreciating the growth that I have personally, and Jess and I have seen in By Your Terms.

Shopping Around The Real Estate Market

Life has a funny way of getting in the way of things doesn’t it? The last article we have posted came over a month ago on January 9th regarding the winter blues. The article title is funny in and of itself, because as Winters go in the North East, this one has been pretty tame. With that, I am sure whoever is reading that is wondering why there has been such a lapse in posts. A lot of that has to do with time.

The Winter Blues

Well… it is officially here y’all… We had a few flakes of snow fall down this week and the holidays are over, so it is time to strap in for the dark, cold, dreary part of winter. Just as quickly as I talked about staying motivated and creating goals last week, that motivation goes out the window this week. The winter is a difficult time for most people to stay motivated and committed to goals they set for themselves. It gets dark super early, light super late, and during the week all we want to do is….. sleep.

Dealing With Holiday Stress

The Christmas season is a wonderful time to catch up with family and friends and enjoy the spirit of the holidays. Unfortunately, the downside to that is there can be a TON of stress around this season as well.  Whether it is finding the perfect gift for your loved ones, financial issues, or the stress of a loved one’s health problems, a joyous time always seems to have a little hint of stress that comes along with it. What’s important is how we deal with the stress. How do we put the added baggage aside to make sure what is supposed to be a joyous time is just that?

The Mitch Six: Christmas Movies

Christmas is just around the corner, and while you are all out getting last minute gifts for friends and family, I have been spending my weekends at home tirelessly watching Christmas movies (both good and bad), to deliver you the definitive list of what to watch this holiday season. Now, there are a million holiday movies to watch, especially if you like the Hallmark channel, so I have divided the list into two sections: the classics and the gems.

Live Your Best Life

Thanksgiving is an interesting holiday in the sense that it allows you time to prioritize and reassess what you are doing on an everyday basis. It’s one of those holidays where it almost interrupts your normal routine. It symbolizes the beginning of a hectic time for mostly everyone and allows you to figure out what is important, and what can fall by the wayside. I equate it to almost an outer body experience where you can see yourself and everything around you, and it quickly becomes clear what is working and what isn’t.
