Hello, dear readers! This year, my main focus is balance, an aspect that's only consistent when looking at all the areas in my life upon which I struggle to maintain it (hint: it's all of them). So I know it's a hefty task to work on, but it's an area I definitely want (and need)… Continue reading That Life + Work Balance
You'd think it'd be something really dramatic. I mean, my greatest fear, my ultimate fear, the one that if I think about too much head on, it induces the closest thing to a panic attack that I've ever experienced, is death. Just the idea that I'm not certain, despite my faith, of what happens after… Continue reading My Greatest Fear

Sure, I had the harrowing experience of knowing exactly what was wrong… Continue reading A Small, Mental Quandary
