Damaged People

I have to admit I’m glad that I was damaged in the past. In some ways maybe parts of me are still damaged. When you’ve been damaged and hit rock bottom you have a humbling experience that will change your mindset and path in life. Every day bullshit doesn’t affect you the same way that … More Damaged People

Enough

I can give another woman a compliment and I love seeing women achieving their goals. What I won’t do is step on another woman as I try to achieve my goals.

Self-Care

Self-care seems to be the new go to word. I was told I need to take more time for myself and I responded with “Really, that thought hadn’t crossed my mind.” Self-care for me in the past was hiding under the covers and sleeping. Now my focus has shifted. It wasn’t that my life was … More Self-Care
