Eye of the Storm

  I can say that at first I had actually been feeling  a bit better for a few weeks. A bit hopeful. At first I was even writing more and started working in my shops again and it felt good even to be doing little things again. But then I realized if I was to stay… Continue reading Eye of the Storm

What Is Self-Care?

  Self-care is something I don’t think I knew about until at least six years ago, maybe even longer. Maybe it’s also something I’ve been doing all my life. Maybe it just didn’t have a term until recently. I am an only child of a single mother. I had to do a lot of things… Continue reading What Is Self-Care?
