Fear is an interesting driver. Have you ever started to cross a busy intersection and then heard a siren?  What did you do next? Freeze, run, go back, move in a different direction, or keep going?  The siren was a danger alert, and the part of your brain designed specifically to keep you safe demanded …

Just Breathe

Need a little inspiration? I have never met anyone who is 100% consistent in their mood or attitude, in meeting their goals, in sticking to their commitments, or in staying on budget.  After all, part of being human is not being robotic and allowing our free will and desire to steer the way.
