    Do you think bad things happen only to you? They happen to everyone. But so do good things.
  • That’s Interesting. Tell Me More. (2/4)

  • Even This Will Change (2/2)
    Don’t get too settled here with the way things are, whether good or bad. Even this will change.
  • Just Show Up (2/1)
    Never underestimate the power of your presence. Telling yourself to “just show up” can give you enough courage to put your body where it needs to be.
