I used to be sick MOST of the time. I really didn’t remember a time when I felt well and whole. Now, it’s the opposite.
I realized today that I had some odd little feelings...a touch of tightness in my chest, an ache in my knees, a drip in my throat. It made me curious, what’s happening?

Ask yourself, and be honest: when was the LAST time you did something JUST BECAUSE? I realized that even playing games with my kids, though I thoroughly enjoy it, is something I value because it’s good for the family and our relationships.

This month as we dive into the theme of BREATHING and AWARENESS, let’s consider how we roll with change…Read More
