And then..

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. […]

Like TBI, Life Is Best When You Are Able To Adapt

Like we learned with TBI, we have to be willing to adapt to our new life. This has so helped with Covid happening. I don’t drive, getting to the gym is not doable for me so we got a Peloton. But since Covid have acquired so much more and made our home garage gym work […]
