Their stories left me AWEstruck. Teetering between — how did they do that? To — I want to do that! Then finally landing on — Thank goodness they did do that! By following their souls into full expression they’ve shown us how the human spirit is conditioned to not only rise, but THRIVE!
I can’t believe I was so late to the Crazy Sexy Cancer party — Kris Carr’s passion is highly contagious! When diagnosed with a rare cancer, doctors told her she only had 10 years left.
