whenever we open the door to change it can feel like everything is up in the air. if one thing is negotiable, then anything could be! when you start listening with the ears of the heart, when you start making space for your own voice, it might feel a bit overwhelming. it might seem like so much needs to change.

Try changing just one thing–an easy thing–and then see where you are and how you feel.”
