Assessing Yourself, Professionally

“Where are you professionally strong and talented?” I just read this question in a workbook I’m currently going though. And oof, I don’t know how to answer it.

While this can be one method of meditation for some, there are in fact many different ways to meditate, and you don’t have to be a monk, or sit cross-legged, or wear robes to do […]

Finding our Identities
