Family Time – Reduce Stress and Enjoy Your Time With Family

If only your parents believed you, if only someone would listen, if only you didn’t stutter, if only you could be like her, if only you had a voice.

I am here to tell you that you do. You have a voice.

She whispers gently to you, lovingly. She is the voice that never leaves you, your comforter, your Higher Self. Listen to your inner voice. Through it, you will realize your vision. Read the rest of this entry »
