Happy New Year!

2021 was definitely not what anyone expected, nor was 2020. 2022 here we are! The last 2 years have taught me SO much. The last three and a half years taught me so much more. What’s important. What’s not important. What deserves my energy and time, what does not. So many losses, so many gains. […]

Moving Again… But For A Good Reason

Moving with TBI sucks. It’s hard. I think it is for anyone, adding a brain injury with huge energy issues makes it so much harder. We sold our house and moved again just after 2 years. But this time we are financially ok. We are buying my parents home so they can retire and be […]

Wants 🆚 Needs

Wants vs Needs. Do I really need it or do I just want it? I grew up never having a lot of wants. I didn’t have the fanciest clothes, the fanciest dinners, but I always had a fridge full of food, dinner on the table and a house well stocked with basic necessities. I acknowledge […]
