An Honest Post: I’m okay but not great

I wanted to write a more specific piece on depression and Jeff Foster's take on it being a need for a deep rest, but it's a topic I want to give my full attention with thorough research. So for now, I'll just be candid. I'm okay, but I'm not great. I've been okay for a... Continue Reading →
