I run a digital marketing agency and that involves me being on social media just about all day, every day for multiple clients and my own business. What I have experienced with my own business is enough to drive me insane. Don’t even get me started on the things I see in my personal news…

Joel and I are very different people. He is more relaxed and goes with the flow where as I am more impatient and wanting what I want right now. It’s funny how life works and you get the right people when you need them. When he gets impatient, I find my zen. God must’ve known…

Mental Health is Hardest During the Holidays for Some I have the kind of depression and anxiety that doesn’t allow me to stay in bed and sleep when I feel like the world is caving in around me. My anxiety says that if I do that then my kids suffer and my marriage suffers and…
