And—we’ve had time to look around, see who else shares our outrage. Make contact with them. And then—we’ve had […]

I Choose Happy! Process Step 4

The “I Choose Happy!” Process is a way to discover your essence and then build your life around what is most important to you. It’s about manifesting from your true self, versus from what you’ve learned you “should” or “shouldn’t do. (I believe that the word “should” is a clue that whatever follows is always
