Dedicate this day to YOU! … To your well-being…to softening into inner peace…to awakening your passion… to connecting with your True Essence, nature and like minded women… and to your birthright, as a women, to take time for you, without any need of an explanation! I dedicate this day to you… I honour you and appreciate you. You are worthy. My wish for all women is that we aspire to connect with our Highest Self and the wisdom that lies within.
