Most of us have been to hell’s fiery gates and back. Some more than once.

This awful experience can refine an already positive outlook.



In the depths of our despair our attitude is burned, melted, and ultimately reshaped.

And then reborn.

Everything that once seemed important comes into question.

Everything we believed was important isn’t.

And what we took for granted, gold.

This ripples over into a brand new attitude about wellness.
