Become the person you wish to be.

We’ve probably all known or heard of a person who is harsh and maybe a bit intimidating or hard to enjoy. We’ll often hear a comment from someone close to that person, along the lines of, “Oh… but he has such a soft side!” or “She really can be sweet when she wants to be!” Notice how, when this person shows that soft side, their face and  body language relaxes, they smile more and they seem generally happier.

Move toward your soft, loving inner self.
