New year, new me? Not quite.

Have you managed to keep your new years resolution? Or have you forgotten your resolve and that commitment has already fallen by the wayside? Or do you not even bother? It is a strange thing how every year we make promise to change something about ourselves? To “improve” or “let go” or do something crazy…

When you feel invisible.

Invisibility is supposed to be a superpower. An ability that could be like camouflage or like the invisible man, it is a permanent state. But when it is an emotion and a state of mind, it causes you to shrink as person. I had been feeling invisible as a mother and as a woman for…
