I believe that sometimes you just have to decide: decide to stop feeling badly about yourself, decide to stop wanting what you do not (and apparently cannot) have. You must decide to stop believing that your real life (the life you were supposed to have, as opposed to the one you do have, this one in which you have been feeling unfulfilled, unappreciated, and unloved) is elsewhere.

— Diane Schoemperlen, Our Lady of the Lost and Found

I’ve decided.  I’m taking a break from normal life (the life I’ve called normal) to find out what my real life (and who my real self) is.  I’ll be praying for all who have supported me and for all those who are on difficult journeys of self-discovery.

I’ll not be responding to emails or comments for quite some time [as if that’s a change].

Peace and All Good, Christine
