Get What You Want…Don’t Leave Claw Marks

I love this quote from David Foster Wallace, “Everything I’ve ever let go of has claw marks on it.” It could easily apply to me for most of my life.  But here’s the thing, when it’s time to let go, it’s time to let go. And clinging? It just makes things harder on...
