Inspirational Stories of Gratitude

Julia's Story - Oasis

This week, I want to share Arunima's story with you. It shows how her choice to prioritize herself

"I was always one of those people who would be kind and loving to others. But I had forgotten that I needed it too.

Universe gave me very clear signs through people and situations. Then slowly, I started working on myself.

I read this quote from Rumi - "Yesterday I was clever so I was changing the world; Today I am wise so I am changing myself." That hit me hard."
