What do you do when you don’t know what to do?

Life is a funny, yet not so funny, thing at times. I’ve recently had news that a friend was unexpectedly ill (they are doing well), and I also recently lost my job (and am looking for another in a positive manner). I have friends who have lost loved ones; I have friends who have sunkContinue reading “What do you do when you don’t know what to do?”

Have you ever faced a circumstance of life that has proven to be rather difficult? Life is like that sometimes: Sometimes we find ourselves in a ‘circumstance’. Sometimes things just don’t work out.
