What are you trying to say to yourself?

The more time we spend mastering the message, the clearer we are about what we have to say, who our message is for and why it matters.*
(Bernadette Jiwa)

When a great moment knocks at the door of your life, it is often no longer than the beating of your heart, and it is very easy to miss it.**
(Boris Pasternak)

When our lives become more about how we present ourselves, how we’re perceived by others, the number of likes we get, and when we do not spend time quietly listening to ourselves, to the joy and pain, to the hopes and dreams and failures, there is a real and present danger that we will miss the substance and richness our lives are capable of producing over many years.
