Approach to Life

Living a workable, balanced, amazing life

“At the time you were born you were given an amazing gift — a gift that most of us forget about as we grow older. It’s the power to design your own unique life. You are an artist. The canvas is your life. From this moment on, take ownership of this gift and use it wisely. If you do, your life will become an extraordinary work of art.” — Cheryl Richardson, Take Time for Your Life How will you paint your canvas today?

One Step at a Time ….

It's been a while since I've posted.  I was lucky enough to have Caroline Kirk guest post for me a few weeks ago and then I had an old article that was first published in Spiritual Wisdom Magazine that I felt called to re-publish here.   I've also been incredibly busy getting Expanding Love off the ground, but all the while I've been pondering what else to post about here.  I'm actually incredibly organised and have a whole list of possible topics I could write on, but when I looked at them, none of them resonated with my heart.
