Hello July!

While planning for the month of July and part of August, I realized 2018 is almost over. I feel as if the year just started but here we are 7 months deep with 5 more to go!

How To Move On When Your Heart Has Been Broken

Before you all get into this story I have recently gone through writers block!! Last week’s guest blogger Alyssa Frison encouraged me to share this story.  I written this blog that you are about to read a few years ago and it has sat in my drafting area of word-press every since just  like a few other stories that I have not posted.

Besides, I Journi is all about inspiring and motivating others so why not share! YIKES! Here it goes!  Continue reading “How To Move On When Your Heart Has Been Broken”
