Hey welcome back to Wellness Wednesdays!

Amy and Thea sit down and talk about STRESS! We wanted to start here because we both see so many people deal with this.

Bravery is in the understanding that you still may not be accepted for your truth. Bravery is knowing you matter even when others say that you do not.
