About the Author


Here you are free to talk about anything: what helped you and what didn't help you; surprises you discovered; emotions you discovered.

You can write about how you may have tweaked an exercise so it worked for you. You can also write about how working through HHH created changes in any aspect of your life and what that means to you.
