Repay the Debt

One of the ways that I find peace is to pay debts. Not the credit card kind. I don't think anyone really enjoys paying those back. There is some time in your life you've had to feel a debt owed you had to pay back. The tug that you need to pay someone or something... Continue Reading →

Empathy and Sympathy Not the Same

Wanted to take a little break from resilience this month and share a video I ran across. I've been studying empathy and compassion a bit.
