"Charcter building begins in our infancy and continues until death".
Eleanor Roosevelt
Ahh...that daydream I have every now  and then -that if I can get myself  together, work everything out, discover my skills and talents - then I can move forward with life's work. THEN I can relax and be on easy street and not "work so hard".
Then reality hits  me again and I continue to re-learn that character building and growth continues our whole lifetime. When I am open to the process of what my  life has  to offer; live in the now  and  "go with the flow", I grow  and mature with much less struggle. The end result?  I REALLY enjoy my life and feel very blessed. :)

W.A. needs more women sponsors!

We currently only have two women worldwide who are on the W.A. list saying that they are willing to sponsor other workaholic women.  Sponsoring someone in the program is a GREAT boost to your own spiritual program! W.A. needs women members to step forward to sponsor other W.A. women! Please contact us if you are willing and have the time to carry the message this way.
