Be happy if you look around and notice that your tribe outshines you. I bet they want to help. If not,…

The Evolved Brain Warrior

Written by Tana Amen on . Posted in Blog, Brain Warrior

Rolling her eyes when she saw the dozens of cuts and bruises on my body, my daughter said, “Why can’t you be a normal mom and hang out at the mall with your friends and collect purses instead of bruises?” Laughing I said, “How you train is how you fight, literally and metaphorically.
