Relational Living - Curiosity is the Key

Life is about growth AND it's about relationships. Every day we're relating to ourselves, others, and life. And all relationships are about communication. The most important relationship we have is with ourselves, because it affects every other relationship. So, the way we communicate with ourselves will impact all our other interactions. Communication is the powerful force that creates our entire experience of living.

Awareness brings understanding, which can create growth and lead to change. We become aware by being curious; curious about our thoughts, beliefs, feelings, actions, and our story and how they are all affecting our lives.
