We’ve all felt it, worry and fear over making a change in our lives. Whether it is taking a step forward in a long time relationship, career change, or stepping away from something that has been a large part of our lives, there is a great deal of courage needed to make these life altering changes. Courage means to stand by your heart and core.

Change always involves some type of loss. When we identify what we love and want to move toward, we gain clarify on our values and purpose.

Let’s explore this together.
