Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – July 6: Conclusions

I don’t always like conclusions because it means the end of something – the end of the book, the end of the weekend, the end of a challenge, the end of a relationship. However, what I have come to realize and understand more as I get older is that the conclusion of one thing often […]

Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – July 3: Change
