Stop Compromising

I have been processing some major energy shifts lately in the past few months. It’s left me feeling ungrounded and more than a little scatterbrained and exhausted.

Pushing Through

I spent a lovely evening last night with a good friend of mine. Our conversations are always moving and the variety of topics are many and interesting.

BTW: the friendship is over.

Approaching the holidays I tend to review previous lists of people to send cards to, send messages to, invite for a holiday get together. It’s strange that I found that so many relationships are called friendships with this once a year interaction. Were there calls or visits or so much as an email during the […]
