Sprout magazine #27 now available (the SURRENDER issue)

Remember your wings.

What if we stopped struggling? What if we refused to trudge through life? What if we released all that no longer serves us or brings us joy--and embraced holy ease instead?

Will this year, this day, this moment--merely echo all that came before? Will our shoulders tighten with old constriction, the semblance of control just beyond our grasp? Let's choose, with clear-eyed intention: our lives, unburdened. To breathe freely, unencumbered by past pain and scarred-heart bitterness. We were born to savor. To en-joy.

Sprout magazine's 27th issue, Surrender, dusts off our forgotten wings. We set our burdens down, remembering the world was never ours to carry. We give up tired, worn-out tradition and embrace instead what satiates our thirsty spirits. Here, we are free.

Sprout online magazine: issue twenty-seven is now available!
