I Am Stronger Than I Realized

  By Lisa Meade   I think it is fair to say that I am exhausted. You know, down to the bone, cannot lift your head off the pillow when the alarm goes off, sling your body through the day, look at the clock at noon and think to yourself, “Really, still another half of the day left?” kind of exhausted.

The Love of Self.

  By Lisa Meade   For many, the criticism and comments that are said in their minds to themselves would never escape their lips and be spoken of someone else. The inner critic has a sharp tongue. It cuts one off at the knees, it draws blood, it keeps long hours and it is the ultimate opportunist. If someone spoke to us the way some of us speak to ourselves, we would leave the relationship.
