Every Wednesday morning I send out to my email list an uplifting thought, something positive to help you get through the week. These are thoughts to perhaps give you a different perspective on living life with more joy and happiness. Join me on my quest toward a more conscious life, seeing the same old things with different eyes. Enjoy a few of my aha Moments here!
