The power of switching OFF…

We all need to switch off at times. Most of the time when we think of power we think of turning something on, creating something that will make things work faster or more efficient. But what if I told you there was power in switching off? I know it’s hard to believe it is true. [...]

“The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique."                    – Walt Disney A life outside the box. We tend to put ourselves in boxes. I know I do. I box myself into the things I should be doing and the [...]
