This quote from John Maxwell is so rich with truth. The key words here are “vision” and passion.

Take some time today to reacquaint yourself with your personal vision for your life. I find that going outside no matter the weather to kick off my shoes, dig my toes in the grass under my much-loved pecan trees and ground myself to the earth brings moments of quiet contemplation and clarity.

To say I was not happy is a true understatement. How could I not know this about myself??
