I don't know about you - but I don't feel super motivated today. Or since things started to get rougher last week. This COVID-19 situation is discouraging, right? It's having an impact on all of us - though I know some are feeling it more than others. I started telework today. But being that it's … Continue reading It’s Going to be Okay
I’ve been learning the art of giving myself some grace. The process of becoming a butterfly isn’t exactly pretty. They start as this ugly, squirmy thing and then they’re wrapped up in an even uglier cocoon for anywhere from 5 days to 21 days! I’m not where I want to be - but I will … Continue reading Butterfly – Monday Motivation
Happy Monday! This is a slightly different Monday Motivation post. I saw this art work & had to track down the artist. She's a new favorite. You can find her, here or here or, here!

You can't make everyone happy so don't even bother trying . . .
Life is short. There is no better time to say what needs to be said. There is no better time to chase after those dreams. I've stayed quiet when I wanted to speak.
