Refocusing Yourself

It’s amazing how small a thing can be and still tick you off. Heck, it can even be on your mind hours later. Silently, it controls your mood for days. Annoying doesn’t even begin to describe it. Right now I’m acknowledging what I believe the problem...

Hosting a Pity Party

Everyone gets in a funk from time to time. One thing bad happens. We can’t react quickly enough and smack – another one poorly timed event comes rolling our way like a boulder. When it rains, it pours. For me, it’s been pouring for almost a month...
