Take Part in Your Life

Take part in your Life. Play a part in the making of you. How long have you not been in control?  How often trapped by guilt derived from nothing? The trappings of expectation and age. Self-inflicted pressure to perform – so much that you can’t move – and do...

Live your life, not your circumstance.

I wrote this piece in response to a post to a Facebook group I follow. Thought it was worth passing along. No house can be built without a solid foundation. A solid personal foundation means knowing, at your core, who you are and what you stand for. I recently started...
