Is responsibility truly the price of freedom? When my adult responsibilities begin to feel tough, I often think of running away or escaping to travel the world (for a sense of freedom). I know many of us do. Here's a blog post about what that really means.Read More
'Just force yourself to do it' is what I will, by default, often tell myself with regard to a new goal or practice that has begun to feel difficult. What's interesting is that seems to lead me to be confronted with how I operate from survival instinct and my personal survival tactic is to freeze. Now, how is that going to go with what I want to achieve? And is there a different way I could go for causing myself to achieve it?Read More

My heart was pounding. My hands were sweaty. The queue for baggage drop was just ahead.
