    Beautiful, Christine. I am always diving in the deep pool without thinking about whether I am actually capable of doing so. Over confidence can be dangerous! Love this.

    I love the way you suggest depth and layers of meaning with subtlety, leaving it up to the reader to determine how exactly to apply your words to their own life. I’ve read this several times now because I liked it so much!

    I often relate to your words and stories in the deepest part of me, I don’t know whether to smile or tear up.
