SET THE LION FREE PART II

In the last post, we talked about the discontent/discomfort that visits us when our limiting beliefs are challenged and we start to stir ourselves, discovering strengths and abilities that we were not even aware we had or had long taken for granted; awakening dreams and desires buried deep within us. We likened this discomfort to a lion on the loose. ... Read More »
