Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Full stop.

Full stop and a reality check.

Life is hard.

Because in life you have to

hold a job,

pay bills,

love your family,

love yourself,

love your friends,

love what you do, but not enough to be engulfed by it,

make enough money doing what you do to live how you want to live,

love your passions and find time for them though there is none,

make time for exercise,

take care of your health,

but don’t be so self-concerned that you neglect tending to

your loved ones,

your neighbors,

and the community at large.

Life is hard, yes.

For everybody in their own unique way.

And every person on earth is staring at a mountain wondering


But life is still beautiful.

Challenging, yes.

And chaotic.

And messy.

And exhausting.

But, mostly, it’s just beautiful.

And we all need to remember that.
