“If we keep ourselves busy enough, we can ignore what’s in our hearts. If it’s dissatisfaction, bitterness, rage, fear, or a pervasive emptiness, it may seem like a good enough trade. But it isn’t. We’ll just grow these diseases, like internal cancers, all the while thinking we are well and thriving and living a full life. Then one day, the phone will ring, and we will find out we’re been dying all the while.”  Shannon Beck
