There is something that is so freeing when we stop apologizing and let our authentic selves shine! I have lived the life of trying to make everyone happy and like me! It’s exhausting! And it’s impossible. We all have different masks that we put on in life in different areas of our lives. I’m not … Continue reading Unapologetically U!
When I was in grade school, I was taught what happens when you light a match and spray aerosol hair spray at it. Totally safe, I know. But it was so much fun!
