Personal Post: “Affirmations Playlist”
I was never much interested in affirmations in the past because they didn't seem to work. Looking back, it's possible I wasn't using the right ones or doing them for the right amount of time. We tend to get discouraged because the changes don't happen instantly. Also, I think I wasn't really ready to... Continue Reading →
