Be Kind to Yourself!

Sometimes I think that we are our own worst critics.  We can often give others great advice as problems seem easy to solve when they are not your own. We only have a small amount of time each day and it is difficult to get everything done. And often, we are angry with ourselves when […]

And so it goes!

And so it goes. Goodbye 2015!  I can’t say that I am sad to see it end.  On a personal note, it was not one of my favorite years.  And for some reason, it reminds me of 1981.  It was the year that I graduated high school, said goodbye to my beloved Nana, and headed […]
