Pace Your Peace.

“Life seems but a quick succession of busy nothings.” ~ Jane Austen “It is better to do nothing than be busy doing nothing.” ~ Lao Tzu In my journeys through traditional therapies and traditional recovery programs, I noticed that some of us seem to be bombarded by this notion that ‘busy is better.’ Ya know,…

Wishful Thinking.

Be careful what you wish for. I remember the day I asked for exactly what I have now. After 10 years+, everything is alligning and no matter the level of difficulty I faced, the mistakes I made, the failures and successes I racked up either in or out of my favor, and the growing pains…
