When you are enthusiastic about what you do, you feel this positive energy. It's very simple.
Let us be absolutely clear about one thing: we must not confuse humility with false modesty or servility.
All women have a perception much more developed than men. So all women somehow, being repressed for so many millennia, they ended up by developing this sixth sense and contemplation and love. And this is something that we have a hard time to accept as part of our society.
I am 100 per cent Virgo, stubborn, over-organised, slightly abstracted from the rest of the world.
