It can happen in regards to our health, our finances, and our relationships, and we find ourselves trying to navigate what feels like uncharted waters, in the dark, and on our own; or groping around what feels like a room ... {more please!}

But here's the unavoidable issue: there's still some left-over turkey in the fridge, mocking you, begging to be used in a creative, cozy and unique way. “Psst—hey!” It says, “Don't forget I'm in here; do something with me!” What to do, what to do, hmm... .
