You May Walk with a Limp, but Walk Anyway (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 268)


“The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning.”
— Ivy Baker Priest

Life is hard. Experiences can be harder. Just walking this journey can be both deeply painful and incredibly difficult. The doom and gloom all around make it increasingly tough to feel lightness, or air, or freedom. Or to see clearly without wincing at the brightness of reality.
