“Exercising” the Demons

I didn’t have to think about life, work, responsibilities or really anything except exactly what I was. Sometimes I absolutely hated the action – like DREADED it – but when was done it felt SO good.

Coming Out…

It’s not something I aspired to. I didn’t get out of bed one morning and decide, yeah, today’s the day this is going down. It just happened – slowly, progressively – happened.

Is Your Inner Coach a Moron?

Written by: Sarah Strange   Sometimes we do really idiotic things to ourselves that we wouldn’t ever wish on anyone else.
