Every day begins a new year
January is a time for resolutions. We resolve to be a better person or develop better habits. Most resolutions don’t make it past the first month. For some, they don’t make it past the first week.

and so you hold on.
Good Things to Come

This has been one of the most profound talks I’ve ever heard. So, to kick off this new category (Spiritual Sustenance) I could think of nothing better to start with. I hope you enjoy the talk and also the video done as a summary of his talk. Personally, I love both.
