Why Dreams are Like Bubbles and How to Prevent Them from Popping

Winter Running for Those Who Run Cold

I live in South Dakota, and I hate cold. I fell in love with running a few years ago, but I always stopped in the fall and didn't start up again until late spring. I don't like cold air touching my skin or breeze chilling my sweat. It is miserable to me. [...]

What if You’re Not Sad that Your Child Has Started School?

I’ve been waiting (longing) for this day since we made the decision. Both my boys are amazing, smart, wonderful people, and I love them both from the bottom of my heart. They are also very different people. Dylan was always very easygoing and happy. Forrest required much more of me; [...]

What if you’re in your 30’s and haven’t found the right career?

Recently, a fellow group member asked this question: "Raise your hand if you're 30 (or in your 30s) and not yet in your right career, financially unstable, or generally feeling like you haven't found the right track yet for where you wanna go and who you're supposed to be? I felt [...]
