A review of Disney’s Soul and finding your Spark
There have been days in the past where I’ve people-pleased, and not sure where I was going, or who I was, but that’s all changed now. I’m currently not working a corporate job, and that’s exactly how I like it. Life in the corporate world wasn’t what my soul needed, wasn’t who I really was, … More Finding Your Ikigai
