It's always something, isn't it?
So I got laid off on Tuesday. Along with a pretty big chunk of our company. All of a sudden this economy downturn is a lot closer to home. Pretty much took a lot of my energy away, and I am now emotionally and physically exhausted after cryin... Read more
This morning, I just got up and did my life...if that makes sense to anyone. I didn't over analyze, didn't unnecessarily worry, didn't mull over my choices. I already know what I want, I know what it takes to get there. I finally figured out ... Read more
