Thinking Brain

What do you think your limiting beliefs and fears take away from your life? I was surprised to be reminded how big an impact they can have, in a not very fun way, last week… I’ve cleared away a lot, and have gotten used to feeling pretty resilient through most things. (That doesn’t mean I […]
