I Still Got It

Last Thursday I had a really on day. When I woke up, I literally jumped out of bed and was ready to go go go! You guys, after my kids went to school, I ran 4 miles and then lifted for 30 minutes. I felt like I could run into a brick wall and knock it over.

I Am Whatever You Say I Am

Learning to handle a situation like a grown-up can be challenging. Invariably fighting to not have the last word is a struggle for many people, including me. If I feel like I’m being attacked with your thoughts of me, then I automatically feel the need to protect myself and explain.
