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
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. It’s not about thinking you’re perfect or being a complete narcissist, but it is about accepting yourself, giving yourself permission to focus on you,… Read More A Lesson In Self-Love
“I don’t know what to do. It’s not now, it’s not yet.” The number of times I heard those words and variations of them come out of his mouth and across my screen.
