2019 is the year of the PAUSE! This year, I'm making an effort to wait a couple of heartbeats before making a decision or replying when something rubs me the wrong way. Of course, there are moments when I totally blow my lid or lie without meaning to, but I think I'm becoming a bit… Continue reading
I started writing morning pages just over two years ago.

And now the momentum that I felt like I had around the holidays… Continue reading That Was a Long PAUSE
