Helping you get wholly healthy - mind, body, and spirit



It’s ok to not be ok

This stinks. Most of us hate change, especially externally imposed changes. And this inanimate, microscopic invader, this not-even-living thing, has done just that. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been on a roller coaster. Grief is kicking in. The uncertainty arouses anxiety.
