Sometimes it has to change

I've been pretty anti-change my whole life. My resume itself leads you to believe I stick with one thing for a really long time. Change is hard...probably because it's hard to control and this little control freak doesn't like the unpredictability of it. But change happens. It happens everywhere you look. Seasons change.

Good things still end

I have a favorite podcast that comes out on Tuesdays. It's called "The Next Right Thing" by Emily P. Freeman. I love it because it's short (usually 15 minutes or less), but it's power packed. I also love the calm of her voice. It suits me on Tuesdays. That's not to say some of the… Continue reading Good things still end
