Feeling fulfilled

"Most women I know have,
in the service of some greater good,
 let their very lives wilt on the vine.
We've dulled our personal lives
while propping up everyone else's,
 and we're no longer able to even imagine
having any sort of adventure, romance,
meaning or purpose for ourselves"

Joan Anderson


“When will I ever learn to accept what
is given instead of always yearning
for more? My lavish expectations too
 often tarnish my blessings.”
Joan Anderson, A Year by the Sea
