What I Learned on Vacation

This was the first year of my adult life that I not only took a vacation on my birthday, but that I spent it pretty much alone–with the exception of my Mommy 🙂 The resort was beautiful, the weather was perfect, and I genuinely enjoyed myself!

Hello February!

Now that the hype of being in a New Year has died down, we can all truly get to work on the goals we’ve set! Most of my goals for the year were spiritual, so I ended January on a fast and have extended it into February with the objective of purging myself of all distractions and staying focused on areas I’m hoping to develop. If I’m totally honest, it has been life-changing. I’ve been meditating on fully trusting God with…
