Five Minute Friday: TEST

In a week, we're presented with so many opportunities to live out what we believe. Or not. As I'm learning more all the time, some of the habituated responses in my own life make change difficult. My body responds by memory. I'm literally working to forge new paths...

Five Minute Friday: COLLECT
