Getting Your Sh*t Together

The other night I had one of those future-thinking explosions. It started out as a clear, rational idea in my head and a couple of harmless questions my inner voice of reason answered. Some of my best thinking happens in the shower, so I felt pretty stable. By the time I dried off, I wasContinue reading “Getting Your Sh*t Together”

Can Personal Growth Be Reversed?

The ego is a loaded topic, though I’ve decided to spare us all the deep dive into its Freudian roots.
