Do you want to dream of the life you want or do you want to live the life of your dreams? Do you frequently fantasize about the life you always wanted but never seem to enjoy? Does “the grass look greener on the other side”? Do you often wonder “what if this, or that, had happened”? Do you question “why, or why not, me”? We are, for the most part, conductors of our own life’s symphony, choreographers of our own life’s dance, authors of our own life’s story line. During this seminar, motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan provides insight on how to begin living a fulfilled life by incorporating awareness, acknowledgment and action into our daily lives.
