For life

Hello, hello! I was so grateful for solid sleep last night when I woke up super early.  When my little guy wakes up in the morning it seems like I just go go go from there! I was able to get to the gym for a workout early, as a result of that wake-up.  I …

My Diagnosis

Today I'm going to blog about my diagnosis and using self-knowledge to stay healthy. I've been told "Knowledge is power."  Sometimes when I'm consulting the resource my osteopath otherwise terms "Dr. Google," it takes me a while to realize that accessing information on the internet doesn't mean that I have complete knowledge about something.  That …

Sweetest gifts

  Recently I have been giving away a lot of things that we either don't need in our home or I don't need, myself.  My good friend said to me last week, if you don't use something why not give it away to someone who can.  This was actually in the context of furniture that …
