If you can see it as a teacher, chaos will actually lead you to clarity and to question things. — Fiona Killackey
What is chaos? To me, it’s where life is disconnected. It’s where there is a gap between what we think we should be doing or how we internally feel and the kind of external self that we portray. — Fiona Killackey
