I have decided that I want to continue to align myself with caring for my family while still ensuring that I care for myself. Call it a deep desire if you must. So, here I am! Seated and ready to consider new thoughts and action new habits. Maybe these are not new. Perhaps these thoughts and actions are ones I have had before.
