It takes two

By Angela

Strength training two to three days a week consistently has been something I have been doing for the last two decades.  Seriously, unless I’m on a trip or vacation, I rarely miss.  You would think that the secret to my badassery and consistency would be my love of the gym.   While I do love the gym, the answer to that …

The End

By Angela

An email popped up in my inbox a couple of days ago questioning is there are really any endings.  My answer to that is yes.  We have beginnings, middles and ends.  The beginning, middle and end to a day.  The beginning, middle and ending to a season.  The beginning, middle and end to a year. And yes, the beginning, middle …

Magic, Magic, Magic

By Angela

In the world of metaphysics, it is a strong belief that you will experience what you believe.  If you believe that the world is filled with limitations, your experience will be one of limits.  If you think people suck, you’ll most likely run into sucky people.  If you imagine that there isn’t enough, then guaranteed you’ll always be lacking. The cool …
