I remember the year I turned ten vividly. For some reason, it was a significant moment for me. It was the year I got my ears pierced, but that was only part of it. I remember feeling like I was so much more grown-up after that day passed. Back in January, I chose the word [...]
Just wanted to share that I have decided to join Brené Brown in the read-along she is doing on her blog. I just finished listening to the first podcast, and it was wonderful!

A few months ago on Christine Kane’s blog, I read a post asking for volunteers to write about their word for the day. I didn’t even hesitate; I just sent in my request to write about my journey with the word “fulfill” throughout the last year. It was an absolute yes, so when I received [...]
