money and success,
really) without the emotional freedom to be yourself and to live your dreams?'
Said another way, their lessons remind us to place the focus on the process of living, rather than on the outcome. This process of living happens continuously, of course . . . each moment of every day.
To be able to look back on a life that fills you with joy and pride, the sun goddesses remind you to:
