    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    Why Not Start By Listening?

    Call it what you will, but there is this part of you – an innate wisdom, if you will – that has tried and tried and tried to get you to stop and fix a part of you that broke a long time ago but you've told yourself that you either don't have enough money, don't have enough...

    A Time I Did

    Well,compared to how I feel about myself now I did. I've always felt unpretty and hated my voice. Now I would just be satisfied to be slender and healthy. People always pick the person that's not overweight. Oh,I know being too good-looking is a problem,too. I think Dita Von...
