The other day I made a post and one of the things I mentioned was how I was in a good place in life. I wasn’t easy. I went through a few months of self-doubt and then, quite literally, I woke up one morning and realized I did not want to be in this position anymore. I knew I needed to get help for my mental health issues. I knew, that as much as I didn’t want to, I knew I had to get my medication sorted once and for all. [Read more…]
2016 has (so-far) been a total transformation for me. Although I am chipping away at things slowly but surly, these small steps have been monumental in my overall health and wellness.

When push comes to shove you take chances and take a drive to Cedarville, Michigan in the great north UP. I’m thankful I took the chance of going on this trip to Cedarville. It was just what I needed to make a new friend, reunite with and old one and recharge my batteries. If you’ve been following my writing for a while you know that I am fairly regular when it comes to taking road trips. But, since all those changes happened in life, I sat idle for a while as I sorted through life. [Read more…]
