Death Remembered | Life Altered

A couple of months ago, I wrote about the death of my granny. She was an extraordinary woman who had such an immense impact on me in my life that her death had much more of an effect on me than I may have initially thought possible. 

This will be a sort of “part 2” of that post.  Continue reading Death Remembered | Life Altered


The Lonely Pilgrimage

Risks are often times the main proponent of fear and anxiety in life. When we come to a point in our journey where we must risk to move forward, we are too afraid to do so, and often times halt our story by being paralyzed by fear.
