It reminds me that there IS a solution, and that when I take the time to raise my awareness and grow, I will see it. Thanks for the gift of your website!

  7. Why do we look down when we’re up somewhere high and someone tells us not to, or look behind us when we’re being chased. It’s called fear and its something not to be reckoned with. But, if we live in this fear we will never acheive greatness or become stronger. Because in life one of the most important things is learning to overcome our fears. “Anonymous”
