I feel blessed to have the most amazing friends. When I have felt unable to pursue my goals, they cheered me on; when I have strayed and become distracted, they aligned me and put me back on the right path. I love that the relationship I have built with my friends have allowed them to […]
P – is for PASS IT ON. We need this series with the letter P for ‘Pass it on’. 2 months ago I formed a new habit of asking myself ‘who needs this?’ whenever I got the privilege of being blessed with money, information or anything.
