At least that’s how I felt. I felt like getting older meant you needed to know more, be better, do better, have more answers, … Continue reading thirty.
Sometimes it’s hard for people to hear themselves. Or see themselves clearly. It’s as if there is a brick wall standing long and tall between them and their souls that prevents them from moving forward in the direction of their dreams; or simply in the direction of their joy.
