{Motivation Monday} It Hurts Because It Matters

Everyone has a story to tell. We are all wounded and living in our pain. I’ve seen several friends who are experiencing loss, a lack of motivation, sorrow and depression. I’ve read and responded to their posts on Facebook. I’ve noticed their tweets and hashtags on Twitter. I’ve felt their pain and despair. You know my name, not my story. …

Wordless Wednesday: Sketching

Last month I participated in a sketching challenge on Instagram. The #MakeWithMe challenge was hosted by JANINE CRUM and featured a different prompt each day.

The Weeknd: {Music Monday}

Okay. Okay. I know I’m probably late to the game. But, I’ve been listening to music by The Weeknd lately. When I first heard his name, I was slightly confused.

Bahamas: Downtown Nassau Adventure

The fare was $1.25 from the hotel to the downtown main area. The flea market was overwhelming as most of them are. All kinds of tchotchkes to see …
