An imperfect beginning

I have put off starting this blog for a while now. Partly because I wasn’t exactly sure of what I wanted to write about but mainly because I wanted it to be perfect. I thought that I needed to know everything before I shared what I have learned. I  wanted to have perfect health before I … Continue reading An imperfect beginning
