Giving yourself Grace
In a lost but found year,.. I’ve learned that it’s the times in life when you question yourself.. everything about who you are... that you can see who you are and who you aren’t.

No, it’s not OK.
When is it ok to say it? When does the stigma reside or the condemnation for admission disappear? “How are you?”,… “I’m fine”,…. total bologna so thick as it comes out of your mouth you could chew on it. It’s not fine. It’s not ok. I’m not ok! When is it ok to say it? … Continue reading No, it’s not OK.

I’m not ruthless, I’m a woman.
Not scared to say no. And not accepting of it when I’m told it. Sometimes we spend a bit too much time thinking about things we shouldn’t. Holding grudges,.. looking backward instead of forward.
