227 Days ’til 40: Growth from Trauma

Doesn’t matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that’s the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap.

345 Days ’til 40: Do You NEED a Plan?

Do you sometimes feel as though you are muddling through life without a real plan or direction?  Do you take each day as it comes, allowing each day to control you, rather than you embracing all that the day has to give to you?  Are you running your life or is your life running you?
