It all starts here – creating your own personal vision. Make yourself a good cup of tea, open your journal and ask yourself the 5 Ws and 1H.  Don’t worry about getting it “right” or having all the answers.  Write words, feelings, thoughts, emotions, or visuals that come to mind.  One step and breathe at a time!
