When Emotions Linger

Do you know those mornings when you get up still carrying yesterday’s emotions? It could be that you are wiped out from the previous day or perhaps something happened that left you feeling frazzled. The emotional leftover carries into the next day and the morning greets you with a sense of dread, rather than hope. I remember such a morning……

When It Rains, It Pours

Do you know those weeks when everything seems to happen at once and you just can’t catch up? As the saying goes: when it rains, it pours. That is the type of week I’ve had… since last week.

Identity vs Purpose

As I was writing the previous blog post, I thought of the times I attempted to define myself by my career and status, so it seemed fitting to write about the difference between identity and purpose.
