InnerSelf Newsletter: September 17th, 2017

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we look at things we can do, and who we can be, in order to make a difference in the world. Scroll down below for the list of articles and links...

For those of you who may have wondered how we fared with Hurricane Irma... All is well. We had no major damage, just downed tree branches and leaves. We did not even lose electricity. I wish everyone in Florida had been as fortunate as we have been. I thank my angels and friends who kept me in their hearts and kept our safety as their focus.

Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
