What is my purpose in life? Why am I here? What work am I mean to do in this world? So many people wrestle with these questions. And the struggle is painful. Instead of looking like doorways to vitality and opportunity, they can pull on us like dead weights. I knew that for me the […]

I really don’t like change. I don’t like it so much that it took me forever to write this post. I dragged my feet and did everything I could do avoid it. Kinda like how I’ve dealt with change in the past. But when I look back at these last ten months, I realize that […]
