Self-Awareness

A word that keeps coming up in my life. Not something you can give someone but definitely something everyone needs and everyone can personally build. It pays off to be more self aware and yet it remains so easy to continue to distract, run, and ignore the need. Especially during a time like this, in … Continue reading Self-Awareness

Struggles Shape You
