Because you will choose how you define 2020 and your life.
Last week was an interesting one. On many levels. Firstly, I signed up for lifetime access to a bunch of learning materials for writers. I have only had a chance to watch part of the "Fear" videos -- what, me? Fear? OMG, yes, I do have some! -- and in that time I've already doubled … Continue reading Joyful
This is a hard blog post for me to write. Worse, I don't know why. Doesn't matter though. This is still a post I've been avoiding to write. 90 Seconds to Courage is now available on Amazon.
