This has been one strange year. I have to say it’s been kind of hard to stay in an attitude of gratitude.

If I look back on this year I know it could have been a lot worse. Read more…

Well here I’m at the end of another day and I don’t feel like I got anything done. At least nothing that was all that important. Where did the day go? Why do I allow myself get so distracted? Why do I have such a hard time staying focused? I can find more ways to procrastinate than anyone I know.  Read more…

Oh no! I’m having one of those days again! I’m questioning myself  and filling my head with all kinds of doubts. I can’t get my mind to shut up. I hate when this happens. What’s wrong with me? Does this happen to anyone else? I’m sure it does but on days like this I feel so alone.       Read more…

Lately, my anxiety has really kicked in. It feels like I’m dealing with it on some level 24/7. For years I could process my stress without much problem. I might have gotten agitated and a little snarkier than usual. But anxiety was never debilitating, just annoying. Read more…
