If you never found the “One” how would you feel? Had this conversation with self just the other week, it’s taken a long time to reach this point
November 30, 2018
“We are who we have been waiting for...” What do you think about that? So many times we “wait” on others to help us & lead us, it’s not a bad thing. But what if the person you’ve really been waiting for is yourself, to finally step up, speak up & spring into action?

Calling the Shots with Yes & No
Yes & No - two very important words that we have to learn to say with feeling horrible.The power to transform our lives will always lie with us, yes & no will either help us step in the right direction or away from the right direction. This brings us back to learning to speak up & not waiting on other people to guess whether we have had enough or not, take on more or not. Call the shots with your goals in mind
