“It is the small minute choices we make every day, whether or not we're even aware we're making them. The trick to a successful, joyful, and satisfied life is aligning those daily choices as best you can. We're in the midst of life, running around with small children; you're just getting by. However, if you can, at the end of the day or at the beginning of the day, set an intention to align those daily choices with honesty.” - Jane Stein.
