The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow (again)

This morning was rough, I was totally dragging butt.  I found it nearly impossible to function.  I felt heavy, lethargic, in capable to move and words can not begin to describe how I struggled to think.  But, I fought through it. I chose a “get out of jail free card” and worked from home in… Continue reading The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow (again)

What do you do, when you wake up sad? There are so many things that you can do when you start the day feeling like there is a rain cloud that is raining tiny rain drops directly on your head, even though it feels like there is not much that you can do.  This morning,… Continue reading When You Wake Up Sad
