Are you Lazy? Is that bad? When I was a child, my Mother told me I was lazy. I know she had enough evidence to support her claim, yet I’m also sure her intent was not to hurt me, or for that message to stay with me into adulthood — but, it did. Now, when I want to just lay on the couch and watch TV in my pajamas – I feel too anxious to enjoy it. It would be lazy and I am not lazy. I’ve considered… Read More »Choose to Be Lazy – Even if You Were Told Not To
