Stop Getting Sucked Into Drama.

Boundaries, YOU

You only have a limited number of moments in a day that are truly yours to find joy in – 24 tiny hours in which two-thirds or more are already consumed with sleeping, eating and working. What value do you place on those remaining six to eight hours? What promise[…]
