When Darkness Falls

Here is where I am… day 22. And let me tell you, it f-ing sucks. Don’t get me wrong, I am super happy that I have made it to day 22, but it has been WAY harder than I had ever thought it would be. After the first 2 weeks, I really felt like I... Continue Reading →

Today is day three and I am going to hold myself accountable to get to day four, and day five, and day six….and more. I am sharing this, because it is hard. This journey is hard because it is a battle of the self.  And no matter what anyone says or tries to do, in... Continue Reading →
