How to Create Some Space

Create some space????? We are all duty-bound and time-crunched, right? So our favourite refrain is, “I’m too busy.” And whether this is true or a handy excuse doesn’t matter.

Stand Tall. Feel Free. Shine Bright.

Over the last few months, I have met more women entering or in the middle of caregiving for their parents. (Typically their moms.)
