You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment unless you trust enough.

If we were to turn away from our soul songs by not trusting ourselves, we are turning away from ourselves. We are turning away from the sparks that ignite our inner being, from the joy and the hope that our hearts feel as we step forward into the gift of the unknown. When […]
