posticon The Master Within

Many of us grew up being taught to always seek help and wisdom outside ourselves. Growing up in a Roman Catholic family, that was certainly my experience. And maybe yours too.

After searching my entire desk unsuccessfully, I was about to give up. At that moment, I looked down and there was my letter opener — right there in plain sight, directly in front of me.Read more
