Hi, I’m Chardé. I’m here to remind you that our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us. There seems to be no one who can see it, but you’re just about ready to tap out. Your plans have been laid, and you’re ambitious and determined, but inside your motivation fades and your fears are growing. You’ve spent the last few years running the race, jumping through the hoops you thought would keep things together, yet it doesn’t seem like there is an end. You’ve given everything to others and now you are the one who feels left behind like no one understands. No more. It’s time you make a change.
