What’s Your Destiny? Are you headed in the right direction?

What’s your destiny? Do you know? How do you know where to look for it if you don’t know what it is? Or is it within us? Do our dreams help us tune in? How do we know when or if we’re on the right track? What are we supposed to be listening to/for? Oooh.Continue reading “What’s Your Destiny? Are you headed in the right direction?”
