What My Soul Knows

I have an important decision to make…and what I’m thinking of doing doesn’t feel right. I won’t do it, no matter how logical may seem. I’ve learned my gut, my soul, has valuable things to say. It’s almost as if logic and reasoning is the lazy way out sometimes, although I’ll never dismiss the necessity to reason through a life-changing or costly choice.

Being thirty was about the best thing that ever happened to me. I’d set goals and achieved them, and the world seemed like a welcome place, with manifold glorious destinations. My mind was likely at its sharpest (although admittedly, I still had much to learn), I’ve probably never looked better, before or since, and I’d started to make some money. Not a lot, but … Read More The Ideal(istic) Adult
