This series is dedicated to the people in my life who have helped me grow in monumental ways.  Embrace the present by way of the past. Turn your routines into rituals and become mindful of yourself. It creates opportunities to experience quiet, to feel honestly and to look inward in a world that is begging us to look  everywhere else. Inviting our loved ones into our rituals fuels bonds and forges connections. It also reminds us why we are doing the work in the first place. This work is important to you. Do it with a pure heart and you will succeed.
