In order to find ways to reduce pain, it is first so important that we name that pain. Finding out what it is leads to learning why it’s there and then how to at the very least reduce pain.
By the time I became a young adult, however, it was time for me to be in charge. I had to make the decisions around the ways in which I travelled and where I went. Because I held everything in my hands from that point on, I saw travelling in a new light. Don’t get me wrong, travelling is still an amazing and joyous experience!

So, let’s discuss that today. I would love your help in getting a greater sense of how I can continue to guide, inspire, and grow our joy together (question for your response at the end)!
Remember something for me, please, you are wise and strong and nothing that you do or experience warrants taking away grace. Forgive, give grace, and know that life is here for you to take it with both hands… and LIVE! So, with some writing of your thoughts, a little support, and even some accountability (I can help!), let grace fall into place. Hey! Rhymetime! 😉
But I do have a solution or two! Especially with the days 2020 seems to have left us, a lot of things have been confusing. Yet, I realize that I have not quite shared much about who I am and what I believe. In part, it has felt like a long and daunting task, evenContinue reading “I Don’t Have All the Answers…”
Usher may have had a big confession or two, but I’ve got one myself. I hope it actually helps you and shows you that we are not perfect beings. We are not supposed to be and we can all come together in the spirit of imperfection to do better. Many believe in the power ofContinue reading “This is my Joy Confession…”
Holidays are a time for joy and laughter and reminiscing and giving. And, for many, including me, it can also be a time regret, guilt, pain, and grief.
