What Did You Say? The Power of Our Inner Words

“I HAVE to do this. I don’t have a choice. I made the commitment and now I have to make good on it.” Her words bit like a bee sting in my ears as she spoke. It was actually painful to hear. “I can’t spend time on what I really want right now. I don’t have time. I hate it,

The Power of Hello and a Smile

Walking around Quarry Park, I did my usual; I headed off for the furthest possible part of the park to be quiet and peaceful and all alone in the woods.
