Hosted by Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor Jill Molli, this episode of Candid Conversations highlights how we can shift from an internal message of shame to an internal message of service. Instead of dwelling on what we don’t accomplish each day, we should practice noticing the ways we are of service to those around us.
