Are You the Puppet Master or The Puppet?


Who is pulling the strings in your life?

When you live a life of reaction instead of response, you seldom choose your actions.  Do you feel:

  • at the mercy of whatever life throws your way
  • like you're fulfilling other's agendas
  • that your own needs are seldom met
  • you are constantly setting aside your dreams and goals
  • as if you are a background extra instead of in the leading role

There are ways to step into your power and begin to consciously create your life.  Check out The Story of Your Life and The Closing Paragraph for insights and inspiration on cutting the strings so you have the freedom to dance in any direction you wish.
