Following your inner voice…

  I often joke that the catch phrase for being an adult should be, "Am I doing this right?" So I found it very fitting when this fortune was submitted to me.

As I was writing last week's post on seeking the light at the end of the tunnel, I kept thinking about another coveted cookie fortune that was recently shared with me and how it relates.
