As we hear the all- time used “get over it”, the truth is we do not get over it until we get through it. Letting the…Continue

It comes through the choices we make, the way we handle things as they come and walk out of our lives. Ultimately, it becomes a matter of grace, how gracefully could we let go and let in of what was…Continue
