You’re Wise Beyond Your Ears.
Smart people know how to use their brains. Wise people also know how to use their brains, but they aren’t trapped between their ears. Wise people know how to integrate their brain and body with their gut, heart, and soul. Fortunately, the last three escape solitary confinement starting in midlife.

Wanna be wise? Help your gut, heart, and soul be seen, loved and honored.
