I had a drink with an old friend last week and we had a great conversation about how other's opinions of our appearance, our lifestyle, our choices, etc dictate how we live our life. We both agreed that we want to work on letting go of this idea that we should fit into...

I've always felt less alone standing in the middle of a storm. Bring on the thunder and the lightning. Bring on the howling wind and rain that falls heavy to the earth. It drowns out everything else. I used to only allow myself to cry in the middle of a raging storm. I...
