Since birth, our lives are shadow creations of those who have come before us. Our perspectives, beliefs, and characters have consciously and unconsciously programmed us. Whether we like to believe it or not, we are all reflections of our relationships and environments. However, the question is, are you happy or at least content with who you are and who you are becoming on the journey of life?
To answer this question, one must take the time to step outside oneself and reflect on what one sees.

If so, we are only holding ourselves back from so much creativity, joy, peace, wisdom, and life itself as it should be. You may be asking yourself, but how?
As we know it, technology is a valuable device that has helped our world advance in so many areas. Technologies have benefited us with creativity, efficiency, healing, and more. At the same time…
