In learning how to blog, I am utilizing Blogging Fundamentals. I do not use them in the order they are emailed to me. I tend to pick and choose what resonates with me at that moment (which is part of my intuitive living)

And when something hurts my heart, I stop, step away and take a deep breath (or three).
