Feeling Good Despite Looking Out of Shape

As I look in the mirror, I see, not a fat ugly lady, but a woman with a happy and contented soul. So contented that I could die but no, I won't just yet. Just exaggerating a little. Of course, there is still that desire to look fit and slim but I could always work … Continue reading Feeling Good Despite Looking Out of Shape

The Pause

I paused for a moment (actually days or weeks) to consider if what I've been doing was worth my time... My musings have proved to be detrimental to my newfound hobby plus the new side hustles I do in order to help me with my blogging escapades.

(I’m Going Home, I’m Going Home) Wondering Why/How Traveler’s get awesome realizations
