Hello from Val and Jeanette. Here is one of our favorite little stories. We believe that stories are one of the best, most enjoyable forms of learning. Through metaphor, stories evoke images and emotions that help us with our own personal growth. They can actively engage our imagination, which is the doorway to our natural genius. In her following story, Portia Nelson so beautifully describes the process of change and how our fear and anxiety transforms with developing awareness.
