Recently got this book as a birthday gift from my wife. While it sums up many challenging points of my 2016, it also beautifully teaches the importance of mindfulness of our own thoughts, feelings and digging deeper…. I am walking into 2017 with a calm mind and hopeful feeling.
“While we all experience fear, it is possible to learn how to avoid having our lives shaped and driven by it…. Without fear, we are able to see more clearly our connections to others. Without fear, we have more room for understanding and compassion. Without fear, we are truly free.”
-Thich Nhat Hanh
