How was work today? It’s really a small sentence and without any context it’s silly, pointless and small talk for most conversations. I’ve been a health coach for three years. I can’t believe it’s been that long and that short. Individually, I’ve worked with almost 100 women in that time. Since I started small group […]

I have been writing this for over a month. I stop and I start. I step away. I start again. I save, I shut down. I have done so much writing in my journal lately. August was the month to bring it the mountain and sit there and write. I went 6 times and did […]
