Reading a book is like going on a great journey. You don’t know what’ll happen, but something is bound to change. And for me, that change has always been good.

You go to bed different… tossing and turning is the norm… you wake to a sunny day but clouds follow you wherever you go.

You dare travel on the sacred road, although you may not know the end.
A simple journey creates a peaceful life.
Don’t do it! Don’t you dare think about giving up! EVERYTHING has a process. Work with the process, not against it. Move forward with purpose and never stop believing. You can do this! You know you can.
