The Implementation of Inspiration {and Reassessing my Why}

I am all about inspiration. It’s something that comes quite easily to me; however, moving to the implementation stage is often a different story.

Of all the stresses caused by the COVID-19 lockdown the one I was least expecting was the strain on my relationship with my hubby.
