Exercising Body and Mind

Well, it looks like 2018 isn’t exactly shaping up better than 2017, as we’ve already had one illness followed by an injury followed by another injury. And we’re only on day 10 of the year! I seem to be mentally and emotionally stable enough right now in order to handle it all. I’m not the…

Woe or Whoa? #IWSG

I decided to track down the last time I wasn’t feeling like I was slowly sinking in a sticky mess of overwhelmed craziness. It’s been over six months. HALF A YEAR! Since mid-July of 2016, it’s been illness and injury and mishap around every turn. That leads me to my insecurity. It’s been half a…
