2018: Thrive – Q1 Recap

Wow, can you believe first quarter is done?! It feels both like the longest and shortest quarter. I feel like the older I get, the more I use the phrase “time is flying by!” and it kind of scares me. But I think I’ve been making the best of it despite my first winter back being the snowiest winter that Michigan has seen in awhile. … Continue reading 2018: Thrive – Q1 Recap

Finally, it’s not January

I’m so happy it’s February. I swear, January was a real downer. For reasons that I’m still unsure of. It just felt like a mini-long year of hell, without actual ordeals.

My relationship with myself has been a very long, very tumultuous road. And I don’t think I’m even half-way through. But when I pause and look back, I can see growth and … Continue reading My relationship with….me
