Do you ever feel like life is moving way too fast? It’s like everything is coming at you so fast that you cannot possibly stay on top of it. At first, it’s manageable. But then, slowly, you begin to feel life overcoming your sanity. You are being buried. Your best-laid plans have backfired on you. Continue reading “Slow Down”
When you die, what will be said about you? Will those who gather together to grieve your passing do so to honor the individual that you were or will they be there to close a door in life?
