Or need some weekend reading material?
- “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to understand ourselves.” -Carl Jung
- “I can paint my own picture of my own reality. If I trust my body’s wisdom and let go of control, it will guide my way naturally, the intuition of my own body will weave out its path, and my story will unfold without even trying. This is what I must remember tomorrow. And to always be grateful for the blessings in my life – that I have the power to make all of my experiences joyful, positive and life-affirming. That all of life is connected, and I can manifest whatever I want into the universe – all of my wildest hopes and dreams, and God will give that back to me. You get what you give.” – Me
