September Goals/ August Update

August Update I am going to keep it real, August was not my most productive month, but I don’t honestly mind all that much. It was our last month of having a few things off of our plate, and we did a lot more of enjoying that time off than I did being super productive. […]

Low Anxiety Days

So a few weeks ago, as I mentioned, I was pretty bad. I started getting better and went into a “fake it until you make it” mode. Now I am doing much better, and I have been trying to get the most out of it. Low anxiety days are not entirely uncommon for me, but […]
