Nothing ventured…

If you want to succeed with anything you have to take steps. Even tiny steps in the right direction is progress. One sure way to fail is refusing to try. If a project is worth your time thinking about it, consider if it is worth trying. Start somewhere.

Such a Time

We are living in unprecedented times. Yes it is scary with a new virus out there. Yes society seems to be off kilter a bit. Oh, but think of the positive. People can love who they want, wear what they want, be who they are, and achieve so much more than we imagined even just … Continue reading Such a Time

Self Time is not Selfish

This thought is a difficult one. You need to take time for yourself. You also need to make sure you don't neglect the people you love. You can do it. Give yourself a bit of time.
