My dad always used to say, "If you take a step and it feels good, you must be headed in the right direction." What he wanted us to understand was that we needed to measure our progress against an inner compass, using our feelings, our comfort level, and our knowledge of ourselves as the ultimate guide....

I've spent most of my adult life trying to hear that inner voice above the noise around me.... It says softly that happiness is as simple as having something to look forward to in the morning.... It says, in a low murmur I sometimes have to strain to hear, that now is the time to have fun.
