What I found may resonate with someone out there. I woke feeling stressed again. “Why do I feel stressed?” I wondered. “Time to focus,” I sighed. “How … More Finding Our True Heroic Selves!
I have used the tool of focusing that I explained in my blog called “Do ya ever just not wanna get outta bed? “Focusing” will tell you why.” many times since learning the meditation in Trackerschool almost 10 years ago.
