A fixed heart brings renewed energy to my life

Only a few days in one’s life are an obvious turning point, a defining and deeply impactful experience that you know will lead you down a new path.

Proper perspective can be so elusive

I really struggle with perspective on a daily basis. It is not so much a result of perpetual deep thinking or a consistent metaphysical point of view on everything.
