Lately, I  feel like there’s so much pressure to have your life together. To make sure that no one sees the broken mosaic inside of you that you have no idea how to fix. When people ask how your day is going, you smile and respond “Good, how’s yours?” without giving it a second thought. There can be a deeper meaning b...

I lie in my bed and tug the covers further up over my head. My phone continues to buzz on my bedside table and I contemplate the ultimate question: “Is the attendance incentive really worth losing some extra hours of sleep?” Free days dance through my mind but extra minutes of sleep fight against them.

As you eat your dinner, you may not think twice about what it is or what it was. Maybe it once was a chicken or a stalk of celery. Others may indulge into  their food as they think about the turkey they saved by switching it out for soy, or vise versa.
