 Viewing mortality as a source of motivation and courage is essential for a more positive journey through life. Kate Manser is a spiritual teacher who helps people learn to love and embrace the journey of life with a renewed sense of appreciation and vitality. It’s no secret that life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, and that there will always be challenges and hurdles. The key to feeling more alive is to stop living for the next big achievement and learn to love the journey. Shift your mindset and learn to embrace the beauty in the mundane and challenging moments, and accept mortality as the profound source of motivation that it truly is. Life can be filled with beauty and fun when you let the appreciation of living drive your attitude!
