 In the conversation I had with my guest, I felt it was necessary to start with this New Year. As the foundation we must all work on and nurture is the one with ourselves. Reconnecting to our authenticity, owning our worthiness, and knowing that we belong. How can we step more into who we are, remove any masks we wear, and cultivate true self acceptance?
