Stress, instability…what’s next?

There is a reason we are here, just not sure yet why.

Have you ever wondered why you go through certain things in your life? Why you may suffer from events, diseases, or whatever you have gone through? Yeah, me too. As I have reached my fourth decade of life I look back and take accountability of the things that have gotten me here. I look […]

Dealing with everyday life

By |January 2nd, 2019|Family|0 Comments

Since my son and I both have multiple health issues it can make some of the seemingly most easiest things turn into something more challenging.
