Happy 2017!


It is a new year! I am wishing you all a…..       There is so much pressure to perform better, faster, stronger and more efficiently in the new year.

Wondering Wednesday: The Power of Being Alone. I recently had coffee with a friend who went on a month long trip and spent some of that time traveling alone. Normally an extremely social person who likes to have a friend along, she decided that this time she would do some of it on her own. She looked at landmarks, asked…
