Hope vs Despair

You might ask what a Health Coach is doing talking about Hope vs Despair. It’s not too many years ago that I had a decision to make. It seemed like a BIG decision at the time. Why? I was sick, had no energy, and felt like all of my life’s dreams were crumbling around me.…

Love & value go hand in hand

I’m coming from a place of complete assurance when I say that whether we like it or not we were made just the way we were meant to be. You can’t escape it, get around it, or change it. You are a person of value, a person unlike any other. With all the violence in our…
