Over the last 25 years, I have worked for a lot of different companies in a variety of positions. My kids make fun of me for this. My very first job was when I was 17 at a small family-run butcher shop with a big reputation. People drove from hours away to shop there. It … Continue reading What is your definition of success?
In my last blog, 'Are you experiencing SADness?", I listed some of the stressors that are currently going on in my life. One of the things I listed was my marriage.
