I can't find a better book title to start off the year with. This book, despite being a short one, is full of life lessons, reflections, remorse, and heartaches. That said, I am glad I read it and would love to visit from times to times :)

Chaos is supposed to be what we most fear but I have come to believe it might be what we most want. If we don’t believe in the future we are planning, the house we are mortgaged to, the person who sleeps by our side, it is possible that a tempest (long lurking in the clouds) might bring us closer to how we want to be in the world. Life falls apart. We try to get a grip and hold it together. And then we realize we don’t want to hold it together.

Freedom is never free. Anyone who has struggled to be free knows how much it costs.
