What’s up for 2014?

Last year my major undertakings will include a video series of Life Lessons. Having spent a majority of my life repeating patterns without ever seeing or questioning why, part of my recovery is to share my take on the life lessons I have learned. I didn’t get too far before I was sidetracked. So, I’m going to try it again. But this time, with a lot less pressure on myself to get it done, and a lot more forgiveness when I don’t!

So please, wish me good luck and great fortune!

Oh Look….. Squirrel!
