Ever have one of those days? Sometimes does it feel like you’ve been having one of those months!? I’m right there with you. I kinda feel like I’ve been having one of those years! We work hard, live the best life we can and it hits us… the BAD day. We all have them. But it’s how…

Haven’t you ever been asked “Define yourself in one word?” I actually hate that question. It’s the ice breaker question on the first night of camp or the random question asked on a first date. I don’t know about you but my answer to that question changes all the time and to be honest who…
