Learning to Forgive Yourself – Showing ourselves love and compassion

Reading Time: 7 minutes This week I have done a total overhaul on my office work space.

Reading Time: 8 minutes They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Maybe that’s true. What the soul is and where it resides, I have no clue.
