Dare to Be You!

Sounds simple? Try it for a day. Most of us that have been raised in Western culture have been deeply indoctrinated from the time of our birth with a whole lot of programing about how we should act, look and be in the world. Between the advertising, fashion, and pharmaceutical industries, many of us have had pretty heavy doses of the message that we need to be someone other than who we are. So much so, that we stop questioning our own internal wisdom and begin to believe that if we look a … [Read more...]
