The Power of a Half Hour!

(Originally posted in 2018) Do you sometimes crawl into bed at night wondering where the day went? Are you gripped with the feeling that you “got nothing done” or that you had no “time to yourself?” What I have come to realize is that often we are simply not “time-aware.” Enter the “power 1/2 hour” Here’s…

What do you want…really?
