Water is fundamental to survival - it is one of the most important shared resources for and by all and relies on our collective care. Water is elemental. It is made up of one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms bonded together. It comes in three forms (gas, solid and liquid) all mutually supporting the other. Expressed another way, it comes from the air (gas) and returns to the earth (solid) and in-between it drenches (liquid).

Have you ever been lost? I know I have, more than once, sometimes even in my own back yard. The reason I ask this question is that some of the times I have been lost, I haven’t been clear about where I was going. And since I have zero natural sense of direction, it’s a recipe for disaster when it comes to me. How that random thought applies to the topic of wellbeing is interesting. Most people spend more time planning their next road trip than they do planning how they want to experience wellbeing in their life. Without a roadmap or vision for wellbeing, you are likely to keep getting the same results in your life while feeling lost in the process.
