Imposter Syndrome and Grace

Here’s an interesting phenomenon that happens when you reach your goals: you question if you deserve to have achieved whatever you achieved.

Just Do the Next Thing

In January, while I was on a little New Year’s weekend getaway with Other Half, I read a book that, in retrospect, I needed to read but maybe wish I hadn’t read it.
