Have you ever struggled with making a big life choice, follow a dream, or lead with your heart? Or have you struggled with change in your life?
In 2012 I was feeling restless. Comfortable, but restless. I had a decent job, though did not feel very inspired by it. I lived in a beautiful part of the country, though the town was small and I felt out of place.

It's your attention.
