Day 25 of My Midlife Sabbatical

This morning routine of mine seems to be working so I share it here. Then, as 3 of my skin products ran out at the same time, I chat a little about products and how I choose what to buy and try. A brunch with 3 of my besties has me contemplating how life moves…

Day 24 of My Midlife Sabbatical

Besides traditional talk therapy, I have found over the years a couple of places where I let off steam. Sometimes I’ve felt emotional afterwards as my body and mind needed it so bad.
