Day 211 “Comfortable and not happy…”

As I sit at yet another Starbucks, this time in St Petersburg, Florida, I’m reflecting on the last eight months and trying to “square” in my mind that this is ending.  As much as I want to get back to some normalcy, I fear that I will fall back into being comfortable and not happy. … Continue reading Day 211 “Comfortable and not happy…”
