A while back I mentioned starting a bullet journal to help me out. I did. And it worked for a while. Then, all of a sudden, I realized that it had become a burden. I was racing to keep each day done. It was something I HAD to do. It w... Read more

Today is my rest day. Menu for the week is planned. Food prepped and ready to go. I just wanted to share the quote I heard today. It was during the wrap up of my meditation session and it really spoke to me... Regardless of how others... Read more
