Keeping Up With Yourself: How to be comfortable in your car with new shiny models around

Keeping Up With Yourself: How to be comfortable in your car with new shiny models around

Welcome to Brown Motor Works Blog! It’s so frustrating to think of others enjoying their shiny new 2021 BMW X5 when we’re starting to see the age of our 2011 X5. Everything we’re noticing about the 2021 X5 makes us want one. It’s a gorgeous car. Understandably, you’d want a more recent, shinier model. But sometimes, greed and desire for new things can get the best of us. Our X5 has been loyal to us over these many years. It may not have all the flash of the 2021 model or the bells and whistles, but it does have many great features. And it’s ours. We’ve paid for it. The X5 is a sport utility with all-wheel drive.

Showing Love in a Time of Fear

Showing Love in a Time of Fear

February 2021 is a scary time for most people in Columbia. With a new COVID19 variant threatening at the same time that the vaccine is finally getting distributed, we’re in a race to save ourselves. We must keep being safe and protecting the weak among us until the vaccine reaches all of us. As we roll into February and Valentine’s Day promises us a moment of validation and affection, love is an essential factor in our everyday lives. It’s important to show your love instead of your fear, not only for your friends and neighbors but for yourself. As we age, fear sets into our lives because we have more to lose. We tie our fortunes into the equity in a property, and we raise a family. We are suddenly aware of our mortality and the vulnerability we ignored in our twenties. We have legitimate fears for the first time in our lives. We must develop coping skills and learn to be brave if we want to achieve more. That’s the importance of love.
