Have you ever learned a critical lesson from an only okay book?

Sometimes you are struggling with that one big thing in your life, and the words you need to see or hear rush right at you from an unexpected source. That’s why I’m sharing this post with you.

Do you feel this way? You may not be a writer but I’m sure you can relate this to any other area of your life right now where you long for some sacred space in time to call your own.
After reading this post it’s clear: there is a time and place for every single thing under the sun .. and one day, our time will indeed come.
Peace 🙂
