What do you aspire to above treating others with kindness?

This is a great lesson in understanding what your real values are.

There is no judgement, only questions. Through honesty, and genuine self-knowledge, we grow.

If you can be anything… what would you honestly wish for?

Inspiration is the best step towards embracing genuine nourishment!
