A Pain in the Neck

It’s been months and weeks since I have suffered with the discomfort in my body.  The pain the used to take over my body from the tips of my toes to the very top of my head.  It has been a true blessing to be out of pain and to be able to move freely… Continue reading A Pain in the Neck

Good Day vs. Bad Day

Not Getting What I Want

While surfing through the many, many, many pages of Pinterest I came across this quote from the Dalai Lama. “Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.” I stopped scrolling.  I just stared at the screen and then my chin fell off my hand and I had to catch… Continue reading Not Getting What I Want
