How coloring my hair changed my life

When I came back to America after a very rough trip through Europe, I was virtually destroyed mentally. I thought I was an awful person, I had no respect for myself, and I absolutely didn’t love myself. I won’t get into why I felt this way, but it is important to my story.

Beginner's Guide to Yoga (Styles, Schools, Traditions) by Elise Espat

I'll be honest.  My first official yoga classes were with Jane Fonda on a VHS tape in my living room.  When I eventually mustered up the courage to find a teacher, I had no idea what to look for, or even that there were different styles.  Overwhelmed, I made my decision based on 2 factors: location and price.  I ended up at a great place with some wonderful teachers.  I was really lucky.  This was years ago when there were maybe three places from which I could…

3 Things You Must Do BEFORE Your Auto Accident

Statistically, it’s not a matter of “if” you’ll be in a crash.  Even the most careful driver will be involved in a significant crash at least once.  I’ve met people that have a crash or two per year—that weren’t their fault.  The best time to minimize the impact a crash can have on your life is before it happens.  These three things will make all the difference:


  1. Cover YOU and your passengers with the right insurance.  Don’t pick an insurance company based on who…
