One thought on “Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…..

  1. Glad to see you’re up and around again. Sounds like your steps are a bit wobbly, although progress is sometimes slow, once you get momentum you’ll start moving again. Don’t focus too much on the naysayers, they’ll only slow down your progress. There will always be criticism, people see the world through their own lenses. Sometimes despite our best efforts, we’ll still be misunderstood, but don’t let that stop you from telling your story. Since you like Brene Brown, I’ll reccomend “Why your critics aren’t the ones who count.” Unless of course you’re the one I heard that from!
