Transition through the mushy place

A transition through the mushy place isn’t easy – but it is simple. What’s the mushy place, you ask?

3 things to remember when you’re in a funk

When you feel like giving up… (Part 1)

Sometimes you just want to quit. Sometimes that voice in your head that’s screaming at you all those horrid things that she can say – “You’re so stupid”.  “Who are you to think you could ____?”  “You didn’t really think that would work did you?”  The snide laughter that cuts to your core.  Those areContinue Reading “When you feel like giving up… (Part 1)”

Enough.

Dang it. For so long I felt like I wasn’t _____ enough.  Not thin enough, not pretty enough, not enough money, blah blah blah.  Now I find myself saying there’s not enough hours in the day.  Realistically though, there may not be plenty, but there is ENOUGH.
