You Are More Than One “Right” Feeling

“Tell me, what is it you plan do dowith your one wild and precious life?” (Mary Oliver) As life shifts and experiences are lived, I return to this question. Trusting and wondering at the same time. From a micro and macro view of this life, of this world, there are many reasons to hold opposites—joy/sorrow, …

Is it worth it?

This is a question I’ve been asking myself a lot the last few weeks.
