Mandela “wellness” quotes

Mandela As the world celebrates Mandela’s extraordinary life and work, it is clear to me that the statements he made were linked to his ability to self-heal.  No wonder he forgave his oppressors and advocated for reconciliation.  From his quotes we are inspired to take on life challenges through reflection, overcoming fear, using our inner strength and knowledge while having hope that all will be well.
