Coming Back

It’s been a while since I have been I have been back here. Writing has been such a cathartic process for me. To be able to express myself when at times it was the only way I could communicate with the world. I cannot thank everyone enough for their support and kindness during this entire…

The Process of Accepting

How Do You Thank Someone That Changed Your Life

Thanking someone for something can be in a form of verbal expression, a gift or public acknowledgement.
