Today’s quote brought to you by the JRE, on accountability, recognizing your role(s), and picking up scents (and 421 other things because it’s the JRE). It pairs nicely with scotch and this articleย onย how the manner in which we express our emotions (or don’t) affects our health; for example, the difference between being with anger vs just being angry.
