Leave It All

I went into 2021 with great hope and confidence – THIS was going to be THE YEAR.  And for the first six months, it really was all I’d hoped it would be.  By early July, things were rolling, all in the right direction.  I’d been on multiple vacations, I was vaccinated, I was feeling good in my skin, … More Leave It All
