I wasn’t sure what to title this post — my first of the new year, new decade — but I imagine that since I’ve been away from posting fresh content on my blog for a solid month now, some of you may have thought me […]
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the concept of gratitude journals, realizing potential and the efficacy of life plans. Why? Because that’s how I roll. 😉
But seriously, I would say most of us at one time or another in our lives reassess what we’ve […]
It’s been a year or two since I’ve shared my plans, forecasts, resolutions, whatever you would like to call them, for the New Year. I’ve never liked creating resolutions in the traditional Western timeline because January is always a hectic time for everyone, and I’m […]
