Quote of the Day: Just because something can be done doesn’t necessarily mean it should. ~ Chris Brady

Maybe it’s waking up and hitting email first thing. Write down one thing you will choose to take a break from this week – then watch the wonder of creating space.  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
