We all know that feeling—the one that says we’re missing something important from our life. In our busy, noisy modern world, it’s all too easy to neglect a part of what we need to be whole.

Does this story uplift you, or is it time for something new? A story can give us a place to wander when our mind is busy. When we need a release whatever is distracting us from being our best, […]

Love in a Shell

Written by Scott Yeager on

What keeps us from expressing love out in the open? Even if you don’t have a romantic love connection, there are plenty of opportunities to express love with our friends, family, and ourselves. But when it feels like everyone else is parading around with bouquets of roses and heart shaped balloons, the easiest thing is to withdraw our love, like a soft creature hiding in […]
