I receive daily emails regarding articles in The Mission. I usually hit “delete”, knowing I can go to the app and catch up on anything that I saw that intrigued me. But today, I read the teaser and found a deep desire to go read more. Thank you for the reminder of choice. Thank you for the contrasts between passive and powerful. As a rule, I look at my life and feel immense gratitude every day for the beauty of it. But somewhere recently, I began a subtle downward spiral into fear and helplessness. I threw my concerns into the ether as I addressed my Higher Power with them, and couldn’t find relief. And then your piece told me how many chances I have EVERY SINGLE SECOND of the day to choose differently. It’s as if you helped me find my superhero cape. My appreciation for this is bone-deep. Thank you!
