April 2013 – Will You Commit To Changing The World?

Do you treat your pets like objects or living beings? Who do you choose as your life partner? You will be amazed at how far-reaching the positive consequences of your decisions can be. It begins with your internal value system. Elated is here to help you live in alignment with your true values.
