All It Takes Is One


Finding people who are “like” us in this world can almost feel as if we’re looking for a needle in a haystack… …or a million haystacks. It’s heartbreaking the silence that is created from emotional abuse…and in fact, any abuse. For abuse is the misuse of someone and/or something. In the case of abuse of people – we, those of us…

Depression, Anxiety and Robin Williams


The past 24 hours has been a flurry of emotions for me running from one end of the spectrum to the other.

Remember Your Form


“Remember your form!” Words my trainer cries out in encouragement to me often. She then follows them by informing me that when we lose form, we operate from a position of weakness – which will, inevitably, hurt us down the road if we don’t remember our form. “There’s a blog post in this!” I quipped, the other day, with a…
