On Saturday, I had a big scare. I woke up with jabs in my side, feeling like I couldn't breathe, and crying. Crying fluctuating between pain, fear and frustration. I thought I was going to have to go to the ER. I calmed myself way down. Mental c... Read more

I had to laugh this morning. I am practicing (as in cultivating) my new "take it as it comes" attitude. I am trying to not get easily riled nor reactive to many situations. I am better in some situations than others. The Universe laughed a... Read more
