I once visited a mansion with a perfectly manicured lawn. The sprinkler system was running and there was a new Mercedes parked in the driveway. When the door opened, I was shocked to see the rooms were empty inside. The family was eating from paper plates on a wooden picnic table in the dining room.
Relationships can be like this too - impressive from the outside but empty without a deep, genuine, heart-to-heart connection.
We know something is wrong because we feel empty when we "should" feel happy.
Today I invite you to look around your life (e.g., job, titles, possessions, relationships) and ask, "Is it stuff or substance?"
