Flourishing February!

I have been thinking a lot about living an optimal life.  Between attending Oprah’s 2020 vision event and hearing her always authentic talk about why now is the best time to be living your best life and knowing of some special people leaving this Earth, as we would say, way too soon- my attention is … Continued
