It has nearly been a year of me looking for ways I can be kinder. I can't say I am actually a successfully kinder person. However, the effort to be kinder than necessary is helping me to see others as God sees them. That is something.
I started the week doing a decent job recording my meals via a photo. Then.... it all fell apart. Got too busy with getting the show ready for tech. As tech neared I found it harder and harder to get meals, let alone, take a picture. All I can say is, I did my best… Continue reading Struggling to Eat Healthy with a Busy Schedule
Wow... with a week to go before the opening of Mamma Mia at my high school, I barely get time at home. It is hard to blog. It is hard sleep. It's hard to get "real" food.
