Seeking Balance? Stay Tuned! – Moxie On Monday

Are you ready to slam the door on 2020? I don’t know when I’ve been more delighted to close out a year and welcome in a new one. Although, I’ve had some brutal years before, 2020 definitely takes the cake. It kinda felt like childbirth! It was a doozy, a humdinger of a year, one … Continue Reading

Was It a Facelift … or Meditation?!

“Come on. Tell us the truth. You weren’t at a meditation retreat.
