As long as we stay comfortable and don’t challenge ourselves – we’re missing out on parts of life and our identity that could bring us lots of happiness, freedom, joy and pleasure.
Just what I said today during a healing session! You can achieve anything you set your mind to xoxo
Things have been challenging lately, I know! If you’re struggling today – I’m sending you a big bear hug.

Do not fear my friends 😉
deviate from the norm.
And what is norm anyways? If we’re all so unique, could there really be a set of perfectly outlined, agreed upon norms? Or is it more like a spectrum?
