Knowing Yourself: Blessing or Curse?

Knowing Yourself: Blessing or Curse?

Knowing yourself well is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because when you are feeling down about something or confused or pissed off, you can usually pinpoint the cause of that feeling. Pretty easily. And if you know where that uncomfortable emotion is coming from, that knowledge by itself can sometimes make you...
Ovarian Cancer Sucks. That’s All.

Ovarian Cancer Sucks. That’s All.

I’ve been putting off writing this post because it’s really important to me. And I’ve been afraid that I won’t get the story right. And afraid that I won’t properly honor the memory of someone who was really special. So I’ve been stuck in this fear. And have allowed a few weeks to go by...
