Friday, August 09, 2013      5 comments

I have repeated this mantra to myself all day. Desperately hoping it will sink in. I stepped on the scale this morning and it wasn't a "good" number and immediately I wanted to crawl back into bed. In my mind I know that the number says nothin... Read more

Listen to the Silence

Sunday, August 04, 2013      2 comments

It's important to get quiet and listen to what the silence is saying. So often I feel like a hamster running on a wheel. I feel like I am moving, must keep moving only to discover I haven't gotten very far. It was so important that I be doing... Read more
