It Doesn’t Make You Bad

In Celebration, Soul by Melani Marx

In the Spirit of Celebration

In Celebration, Spirit by Melani Marx

What if today you simply celebrate all that you are. All that you have. All that you see? What if this year you choose to begin with an epic and utter sense of starting fresh? What if you leave behind any feelings, stories or beliefs that create a sense or feeling inside your precious being of “less-than” or “not enough” …
