Je ne sais quoi

Je ne sais quoi

It's the New Year and as I've mentioned, I have a lot to get accomplished. I'm challenging myself and getting serious with a career and pursuing what makes me happy, which at the moment seems to be writing.  I've enrolled in a workshop, "Striving Styles, who are you meant to be?"  It's been an interesting [...]

A New You?

A New You?

It's been quite a year, I wish I knew where it went. So many things to be thankful for, my family, my friends and absolutely everything in between.  Honestly, it's all good. Those little stumbling blocks are meant to help us discover who we really are, or at least get us to where we need [...]
