Many of us have needed that extra reassurance over the last year from our friends and/or loved ones because of well…this past year’s events (of course, most of that interaction has been virtual).

Self-Improvement Sequestration Project Update

I have a confession to make. I haven’t really read all month, whether it be a physical book or audiobook. In fact, I haven’t even thought about blogging or posting in the last couple of weeks.

I heard about the book I’ve Been Thinking…: Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life a couple of years ago but hadn’t opened for the book for one reason or another. This journey of self-discovery seemed like the best time to finally read it.
