What we resist, persists…causing us stress & anxiety.

When we do, we end up holding ourselves to an unrealistic standard that was someone else’s measurement for themselves; yet, we assume it’s right for us. It’s not. You can be sure that these expectations, comparisons, or the world’s ideal…only Read More

In February, there’s often a focus on love, so I thought I’d share with you what I find interesting on the subject.
