What Agreements Have You Made?

The Four Agreements, by don Miguel Ruiz is an inspirational and life altering book.  don Miguel Ruiz offers an insightful look into four agreements that foster living a life ON PURPOSE!

What agreements have we made that don’t serve us anymore?  As members of the Trans/Queer community many of us have taken on agreements of domestication that go against the essence of who we truly are.  We get to examine the agreements we’ve created or have been given and choose to honor only those that serve us.  It’s our time to be fully self-expressed, create our own path and not STRUGGLE down a path selected for us.
