Who I am

I’ve asked myself the same question lately, in one form or the other, constantly: Who am I? What do I want? A few months ago I realized I don’t know the answers anymore.

But do you ever have one of those days where you just can’t? That was me today. The last 24 hours or so have been a little crazy. And I was at the end of my rope. Stressed, tired, irritable, frazzled. So…

Happy Thanksgiving!
