Quote Of The Day: Inspiring Words by Rajni Kurichh
When we are confronted with unwanted situations, we have the opportunity to practice being the best version of ourselves – we can choose to stay centered, to reach for a better thought, to remain unaffected by others’ opinions, beliefs and actions.

“Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.”
