We have all settled. For a relationship not leading anywhere, a job we hated, a botched dye job, overpriced quinoa flour, a wardrobe of clothes we kinda like but not really. On one hand, settling can be a good thing, it rustles up those parts of us that we let solidify into entitlement. When it becomes […]
Today I’m sharing a post over at Erika’s site, Overflow, her blog is the homebase of the #wholemama link up. Each week we are given a theme word and write our own thoughts on it. This week the word is “change”, here is a bit of my post. . . . My oldest son has […]
