You Are Your Thoughts

The simple reality is that our language and thoughts offer a framework for meaning. Think on this powerful idea for a second: your words and thoughts determine your reality.

Superfoods – Down the Rabbit Hole

A few things you should know about me right off the bat, I’m an avid yogi and ultimate pizza lover.
