"I'm feeling so much more positive energy and I've been flat out making lots of small changes to my physical environment too that are feeling so good.

So pleased that I am finally taking some positive action."

"Thank you for just saving my marriage. I just mean that because it's a very stressful time for me right now and from the class I realize that the way I have come at my husband to get him to do things, which I thought was loving and caring - really wasn't. I didn't quite give him a choice."
