Enrich Your Personal Life With Dr. Terri Ann Parnell
To enrich our lives means we must fill our body, mind, and soul with experiences that give meaning to our being. We must fill our lives with those that teach us to be better people and challenge us to become the person we want to be. It also means we must overcome the obstacles in our lives with courage and determination. Of course, we all want a happy and fulfilled life, but how can we do that? What are our personal goals? And most importantly, how can we enrich our personal lives so we can also live our lives to the fullest?
