It is impossible to always be honest, right? You have to sometimes white lie to save someone's feelings, right? How many times have you said, "I don't care what we have for dinner." When you really wanted something you have been craving all day. Here's a good one, "No, that dress looks good on you." … Continue reading Always Be Honest

Just Like That…

I made a decision to simplify my life. I started with small things like marking unnecessary emails as junk. Then using a calendar on my phone to track places to be and important things to do. Then slowly making changes in my diet that are small yet healthy. One thing at a time. One small … Continue reading Just Like That…
