“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust: First Part What drives your decision making? We would all love to think that we make our choices based on WE want…but the real question is: Do we make decisions with right intention or is our intention altered by the opinions of others? Have you ever been in a situation when you have just known that’s what you wanted? Every nerve ending in your body is telling you it’s the right
“When you hold onto your history, you do it at the expense of your destiny.” –Bishop T.D Jakes How many of us define our self-worth, our morals, our expectations from our past? For many years I defined myself by past experiences, past relationships and past scenarios. My soul self looks back at these moments and I know she wouldn’t take it back for anything.

I was brushing my teeth the other and I caught a glimpse of my reflection in the mirror, I thought to myself,
"Sometimes when I look at you, I don't recognise myself."
