Live the life you want to live

because there is actually no one stopping you but yourself.

I’m amazed at all the excuses I can make to myself about not doing something; only to realize that the only thing I’ll regret is not doing it.

It’s difficult to take a leap—or a hop sometimes. But the universe has got your back.

On-point “wellness” series.

I stumbled across this series and instantly felt a spark: “what on earth is wellness?”.I love the very down-to-earth Camille Rowe who explores this broad topic, though intended for the well-being of people, can do the exact opposite at times.

Finding the root 根本をたどる。
