Expecting the Best!

8/2/16 Notes to Myself: Reminding myself that I am responsible for my choices and how I see life. At my core, I am a creator and can always seek to find the good in every moment. What I experience is a direct reflection of my own attitude and perception. If I expect the best it’s […]
