A single moment of misunderstanding can feel so toxic and poisonous that it can cause us to forget a hundred lovable times spent together, within just a moment.

Typically, any given year involves so much planning, effort, control, and even stress that we are pretty “wound up” as it ends. Living with intention and focus is a large key to success, and it is difficult to have intention without self-awareness and reflection. Given this, there is always a “winding down” as one year…
