#556 The world works in incredible ways. When you open yourself up to the idea of something, maybe you don't believe it 100% yet, but you at least open yourself up to it, exciting things start coming your way.

#546 I'm gonna be honest. What you're about to hear in today's episode might be a little disturbing. Okay, I'm kidding (mostly). You might cringe a little, though.
