How’s that working for you…?

Guess who's bizzack!!! Hey booskies! So its it's been a MINUTE since my last post. Life is "lifing" as usual and I have gotten sidetracked trying to stay afloat.  Been thinking a lot about reflection and how I'm putting my own suggestions/recs into practice.

Use Your Senses: Healing Through Bodywork

Too often I think we forget that we have 5 (sometimes 6) senses. You remember those lessons from preschool and early elementary school where you were encouraged to identify what you could see, taste, smell, feel and hear?

It’s been a while… Continue reading It’s Complicated…

You Gon’ Get This Lesson in Patience Today!

Have you seen that old Kevin Hart comedy special where he was talking about how his dad would tell people (including him), “you gon’ learn today!”?  That was one of his funniest specials IMO because it really drove home the point that whatever you didn’t already understand, you were about to learn it.

7 Things non-bae Does that BAE Never Would

Loss is hard.  It’s one of the hardest things (if not the hardest) that you’ll ever experience in your life.  Different losses hurt differently and different people react differently to loss.

There is NO Safe Zone!

*Language Warning so if you're offended by curses, pick another post ;-)* This post is going to be short and sweet because the truth is always more concise.  I heard about a study that found people who lie use more words overall than people who tell the truth.  Makes sense, right? The truth doesn’t need… Continue reading There is NO Safe Zone!
