Toni was very open and honest in sharing her journey from divorce, to drug and alcohol use and the final act of revenge on her ex-husband that, at first glance wouldn’t be considered severe, but it still landed her in prison. As someone who has never experienced jail or prison from the inside, I found Toni’s stories fascinating. Some of the topics we chat …

I can say, without any doubt…You’re Definitely a 10 on the Attraction Scale It all comes down to having a little perspective and seeing the big picture.

It’s wrongly focusing on what you’re not doing/having versus what you have, basically undermining your confidence that you’re making the right choice by doing what you are doing. …
