What I Know to Be True About Staying Positive

After a very busy week at the Neujahr household, I found myself struggling to stay positive. I was tired, needing some personal space and feeling a bit stressed about the week ahead. I had to stop yesterday and reread my own blog from a few days ago. I needed a reminder about how to stay […]
