Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take the step. – Author unknown.
As the most sophisticated form of life on planet Earth, we house within ourselves infinite ability and boundless resources. To overcome and to thrive is basic human instinct. However, sometimes life brings challenges and pain. We may feel overwhelmed, lost, or broken. Some issues may require subtle shifts in thought, and at other times, a deeper self-exploration may be needed.
