January 1, 2020

Setting my intentions for the month. You should too.🙂 Today I hoped to watch the sunset. The first sunset of 2020 would have been a perfect way to begin the year. Instead, I was at work. “Almost seeing” the sunset from my gas station window… Tomorrow is a new day though. I’ll try again for…

Is It Really About The Journey?

They say it’s all about the journey.  The journey to where exactly?  Where am I headed? Is it all about the journey if you have no idea where you’re going?  Is there even a journey at all, when you have no idea where you’re going?  Today, I feel like the last few years of my…
