Three events have occurred in my life in the last week, where all these things have been illustrated in vivid technicolour. All three events have required me to pause, take stock of my position, consider what felt right in my heart and in my gut, and move forward in truth.
Simple, but not always easy.
But always resulting in an unhindered heart.
