“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. Yes!!! “To live and live well”….soulful living doesn’t want everything happy and nice, it presses us into mess and exploration of all. How plain and flat, what I call a one note would life be if we were perpetually only experiencing happiness? Life is spicy at its core😉🌶❤✨
