August Gratitude

After thinking about my last post, I decided that for the next 10 days in August, I am going to encourage a GRATITUDE CHALLENGE. What better way to take away that self-focus? What better way to engage our energy into all the wonderful things we have to be grateful for and shift our focus onto…

What is love?
