But I have been feeling like I’m forgetting something, and that my to-do list is super long and impossible. These things aren’t true. Rationally, I know this.…

    Restoring Balance

    December 11, 2017 Jennie

    Love ’em. Hate ’em.

    December 4, 2017 Rosa

    Love ‘em. Hate ‘em. Make ‘em. Avoid ‘em. Set ‘em. Forget ‘em. Goals. In spite of the love-hate relationship we have shared over the last 33 years or more, I still get wooed by the promise of possibilities they offer me. Somewhere around age 30, I gave up on them all together and determined to…
