In the beginning, everyone kept saying, I’m not sure how you do it all as a single mom, you are so strong. I would politely say thank you as I internally rolled my eyes and prayed that someday I would see the strength they were taking about. When you’re a single mom (especially a newbie), […]
The Releasing Ceremony
Recently I stumbled onto the world’s best therapist. I am so grateful for her guidance, but mostly I’m grateful she is so in tune with her spiritual side that she allows me to dig deeper into my own spirituality and yoga practice every time we meet. The first time I met her I opened the […]
