Pumpkin and Kale Sauté.

Pumpkin and Kale Sauté

The Remarkable Paradox: Ashamed About Being Called “Brave”

I posted a picture for Throwback Thursday a couple of weeks ago, and found myself confused by my negative reactions to some of the comments it received. (Even though they were universally positive.) “You are so brave and such an inspiration” “awesome! so brave to open yourself up and such a great release to know you’re…
