Swell Cold Co Op - Mark Caneso

It’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday.

So stoked on this!!!!

I have had the amazing honor of having & reading this book, and it is full of the wisdom J.S. has poured into this community for some time now. It’s honest, and it reminds us that we can all just relax a little bit. 

10/10 would recommend.
