That’s a summation of the realizations that surround me these days. For far too long I put off living the life I yearn for in order to do what others wanted. My myriad of excuses have included taking care of “responsibilities”, running from dealing with my “stuff, unfounded fear of not having enough money when I get old, doing the “right thing” and so on. No more. I reclaim my life and am so very grateful for the inspiration that makes me know 2012 is the beginning of the life I have longed for.
People often say
that this or that person
has not yet found himself.
But the self is not something one finds,
it is something one creates.
