Welcome to Day 4! Yesterday we talked about losses, endings and beginnings, and making transitions. I trust you found something in your life that is still holding you, and were able to put it to rest so that you can figure out how to move forward. Because, move forward we must.

Yesterday, we talked about not getting stuck in the detours of life. See: 31 Days of Personhood: Day 4: Detours. We have decided that we have had enough of not thinking well ourselves and our dreams, and are tired of buying into the predictions and constraints others place on us.
