There are few decisions more painful or complicated than deciding whether to stay or to go.

Loving someone consumes us and envelops our life.

We give our heart, our body, our mind, our time, and our energy to another person.




We’re community-driven. We’re dedicated to sharing “the mindful life” beyond the core or choir, to all those who don’t yet know they give a care. We focus on anything that’s good for you, good for others, and good for our planet. We’re reader-created, submit your article.
