A good friend of mine shared a Christian focused mindfulness video that was beautiful. What I found was that 20 mins is to long for me right now. I found a 7 min video and it’s […]
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This is an important month to me because so many of my loved ones have been involved in some type of domestic violence.
Hey Y’all, It’s been way to long since I’ve posted. I just wasn’t feeling it. But this year I’m making an effort to post to my blog more often, in hopes that it will help me get my thoughts out, providing me the ability to sift through my feelings about my latest life events. On […]
