Dear Me

It’s been years since I wrote my first letter to my younger self. I think its about time to write another one. In my first letter, I wrote about how much I love myself. How I don’t want to change anything. But life has a way of changing us, in his time and his way…….

Going Nowhere…

What’s Your Feel Good Story?

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” Leo Buscaglia This morning, a lady co-worker who’s been out for a while due to surgery, told me…
