Have you tried Five-finger living?

DAY 16: Make a Move

After the women’s retreat experience that I shared with you a few days ago, I wrote down a few things that I felt strongly to do. ​Easy enough. ​ But later, the idea of doing any of them made me feel overwhelmed, self-doubting, and worried. But then I asked myself, why did those negative feelings…
