What does wellness mean? It most likely has a different meaning for everyone and it cannot be defined in too narrow a way. You see yourself with your own eyes and you are the only one who knows what you feel. You are also the only one who can bring profound change into your life. Your desires and passions, which allow you to change and grow, come from within and you are the only one who can make them strong enough to take form and to manifest in your life. Only change supported by a deep passion is long lasting and can be sustained.
