Hello & Welcome!
Thank you for dropping in on my very first blog post! During my most recent appointment with my kinesiologist, the topic of living in the moment came up repeatedly for me. This was something I wasn't expecting to hear at all - however it did eventually lead me to a significant perspective shift.
