Stop reacting from your emotions and respond to your life.

Living with boundaries, not being defined by what people think of you, being self-aware and knowing your values, who you are, and what matters most, and loving and leading yourself well first…doesn’t mean you are unaffected by others. It means you get to feel neutral, dare I say content a lot of the time.

This is the courage work to stop reacting from your emotions and instead respond to your life.
