In my last blog post I talked about looking back on my goals for this year and reflecting on what I have accomplished.

Well, yet again, this week didn't go as planned. But that's life, right? As I've discussed many times, I've been dealing with some health/digestive issues most of my life, but especially the last six months or so.

I’m a hot mess. I have been for most of my life. I try to have my sh*t together and I’m good at making it look like I do – most of the time – but in all reality, I am struggling every day to keep up with everything going on in my life and… Continue reading Finally Getting My Sh*t Together – A Year Long Blog Series
