An introduction to YOU!

Accept the fact that you affect the world around you
Accept the fact that Life supports you, and you now commit to consciously contribute to Life
If you had no problems, what would you be doing? What brings you the most joy?

Pretend you are a blank canvas. What would you put on that canvas? What would you create about who you are, who you want to be, what your life would look like? What lights you up?
