When we don't feel fulfilled...

There are many areas of our life where we can feel unfulfilled: at work, in our relationships, with the way we manage our time, with our material environment, with the way we look, with the way the world goes etc… Often, our first reaction is to look outside for solutions: change job or partner, go on a diet or use time saving apps, criticise this or that. All things that are outside of us. Yet, lack of fulfilment is something that happens at the heart of ourselves.
