Today's Story is Urashima and the Turtle. The Mindfulness exercise is The Emotional State of Happiness. The Closing Thoughts are on Nostalgia and moving forward / future possibilities.
*Slight Disclaimer* This story ends sadly; if you are not in a good place, you may find it troubling. I encourage you to do the Mindfulness exercise as you will truly benefit from it but perhaps you should skip the story until you feel you are in a better state of mind.
