Speaking your truth

Can you ask for what you want?  Can you speak your truth even if it's uncomfortable and awkward?

Goals

When I ended my marriage over two years ago, over time I found freedom.  I could make my own choices without consulting anyone else and could set new goals and challenges for myself.  One of those goals was to do yoga.

AVD Anti Valentine’s Day

It's the day before Valentine's Day. I don't want to be sad, but a small part of me is. I keep telling myself Valentine's Day is a made up holiday created by the greeting card companies and chocolate manufacturers.  It's bullshit.
