Day 109/365: Carefree

So today I just made up my mind to not worry about much of anything. I kept telling myself: I am talented, I am amazing, I am beautiful, I am smart, etc, etc., etc. And I gave myself permission to just be whoever I was in the moment. And not give a cuss about how... Continue Reading →

Day 100/365: Rushed

Lately, all I've felt is rushed. I have an eBook launch that's taking up quite a bit of time and I have a lot of freelance projects that I'm tackling as well. And I feel like both are constantly vying for my time. I am a pretty effective manager of my time, so this work... Continue Reading →
