I have seen a ton of stuff on social media these days (mainly because I have spent a ton more time on social media these days) about using our lack of time as our excuse for not keeping our house clean, or getting our workouts… Continue reading The World Finally Slowed Down, But Did You?

Class Theme: The Most Important Thing

In a world where everything seems like a priority, the to do lists are never ending and we continuously feel pulled in six different directions, it's all too easy to become overwhelmed.

What I Wish I Knew Then

I’m certainly not a person who has regrets, and certainly not because I haven’t made a ton of mistakes or got stuck on the wrong path for too long.
