Guest Post | Healing is A Choice

Welcome back Tribe Members! It's been a while since we had anyone guest post on the blog, but I am pleased to introduce you to someone new. This month's guest is Stephanie Jones, wife, Mama to a beautiful baby girl + awesome owner/blogger of Courage From Within!  I love reading blog posts Stephanie writes, because she shares from her heart + her experience is one that is often overlooked.

We don't think of our actions as gifts of inspiration and hope. It is a common misconception for us to believe that we are only important to those closest to us, such as family members. Today I want to challenge you to think differently.... 

Your smile is truly a gift! You never know how smiling at someone can change their day. People are constantly observing us while we remain unaware that we are being studied.
