What’s that something inside you that you haven’t been able to fully heal from yet? How long has it been sitting in the driver seat dictating your life? I’m the first one to admit I have allowed some ugly wounds to eat away at me longer than what I knew was good for me.
Remember when we were little kids and we would sit huddled with our best friends in pillow forts, tree houses, or just laying under the stars dreaming out loud of what we were going to be when we grew up?

It does not mean you instantly feel happy, sugary, and want to break out into song like they do in the movies, but it means you are utilizing your power to invest into cultivating a life that will ultimately bring you joy.
Have you ever felt stuck while running on empty? It is a dead-end road that utterly drains you. Your energy, joy, and wholeness is taken from you bit by bit and you are left with dark and airless emptiness. Here alone in this miserable hole your heart conforms to its cold surroundings and hardens. You learn to give it to no one.
