When the dog bites, when the bees sting, when I'm feeling sad...

Every woman should know
how to find, keep, and list her favorite things. It's essential. These are the things that you reach for when your emotions (be they sad or glad) run high. It's the pure reflection of your light. It's not biased to anyone or anything except you. You don't have to explain them, you don't have to share them and yet they sustain you through the "times of your life". They are the things that speak to you, move you, understand you ... when no one else can. Welcome to my world and the things that help me to keep my balance
