I am a professional worrier. I mean, if someone paid me for it, I could make beaucoup bucks, sister. It comes naturally to me; a keen sense of the world on my shoulders, responsible for every darn thing. But the fact is, I'm not responsible for everything. Owning it all, worrying about it all ain't … Continue reading Changing the Message, Changing Your Life
