Be-You-tifully Fit: Riding the crazy mental train

I’ve been quiet.  Not abnormal for me.  I am quite the introvert…well unless we are close friends, then I won’t shut up.  That’s beside the point.  I’ve been quiet because I lack direction.  I lack direction because I burnt out.  I burnt out because I was crazily running like a mad woman.  Needless to say, […]
