Grey Zone

Isn’t life great when we have all the answers? When things are black and white, it’s easy (or at least easier) to make a choice. We can look at the respective paths with all of the information and make an educated decision. However, what about when we do not have all of the information? That… Read More Grey Zone

A Lesson In Self-Love

Today I thought I’d give you three short notes about self-love. Self-love is truly one of the most important qualities one can have and it takes a lot of work sometimes.
