When life gets tangled into knots, it is easy to keep pushing and tugging and trying. After all, most people are taught that success takes effort and discipline. You have to keep striving, keep pushing, keep going to get to the next level, etc. Most of the time you just end up exhausted, unhappy, unfulfilled, and unmotivated.
How about trying a new way? How about clearing your mind and heart for what’s next?
Easier said than done sometimes

It is actually amazing what you hear when you slow down, breathe deeply, and listen.
