The Greatest Positive-Negative

I have learned that the importance of self acceptance and understanding will help to create a microcosm of wellness and balance from within. When we allow the negative opinions of others to influence the direction of our path, we can be led in a direction which creates inner turmoil versus inner peace and understanding.

Yes, some of us may need a little more tweaking than others, but it is important to have it. To understand our triggers, our demons, our life experiences that have changed us. Remember, not always where these poor choices for the negative. There has been significant growth within those whom have made poor choices. Inspire, to me in it’s humanly fashion, has become to mean the ability to be responsible for igniting a positive force into another human being. Simply, make someone feel good about themselves. Nique-Wear 2016 is about...
