Just Relax

We are living in a crazy time. For all of us, this is the first pandemic that we’ve ever experienced and most of us were not quite ready for the reality and life shift that it’s brought. We’ve been cut off from friends and family. Our kids have stopped going to school. Some of us …

Why I’m Looking Forward to Midlife

Midlife. I’m still not sure why this is such a taboo word among women, but I think it’s because of the attachment to “crisis”. I think there are many of us that fear midlife because we think that it is the end, but really it’s the downhill. And by downhill I mean that we’ve done …
