The Road to Rediscovery

Life is a journey. Along the way, we hit tight turns, inclines, and rough terrains where lessons are presented to us. Some of these we discover and learn, and others are presented to us AGAIN later in life. Will we just ignore them and move on, or REDISCOVER the lesson, and grow? Aubrey shares lessons he's learned on his journey, and chats with extraordinary people who share their amazing stories as well.

I'm ready to experience those benefits and open to any suggestions on how I can work towards hitting the hay much earlier than I do now. What do you do that helps you wind down when calling it a day?
