At What Cost?

Recently during my coaching class, one of my classmates had a huge realization about her possessions, her stuff.

Keeping Our Important promises

Today, at my step aerobics class, I introduced myself to a new member. She told the instructor that she HAD done step aerobics 15 years earlier and was very excited to try it again.
