Recovery How To Make Your Comeback Title


It’s been a little over a month since my last post here mainly because I’ve been going through something we’ve all experienced on some level – recovery. Maybe you’re recovering from something right now – like the end of a relationship, or the loss of someone close to you, or failing a test you studied extremely hard for, or like me, recovering from something physical like surgery.

“If you’re always rushing to the next moment, what happens to the one you’re in?”

At one point or another we’ve all thought about how life goes by so unbelievably fast. But have you ever thought maybe life “happens” so quickly because you let it? You spend so much time thinking about what needs to be done tonight, tomorrow, this weekend, or even next month. Read more…
