I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
-Agatha Christie

This quote seemed most appropriate these last few days. 

 Self-doubt slowly snuck in and decided to stay awhile.  I am at an incredible place where I can create my world and my life, but sometimes it can be scary and overwhelming....lately I've been asking a lot of questions...who am I? who do I want to be? where do I want to go? How do I get there?? where do i live?? 

These growing pains are inevitable, but I know that at the heart of it, I am happy to be alive.

In this moment, I am thankful for friends and rich conversation.  Conversation that reminds me:


  1. Perfect quote. Sometimes it is overwhelming, but the truth is if we knew how to get to point A to B in the quickest way possible, we would miss so many amazing off-the-beaten-path moments.

  2. What a beautiful post. I Love the way you put it. "Growing pains". I'll definitely remember that the next time I start to feel overwhelmed by all the directions and options we have in this world. I guess it only makes things all the more exciting, right?

    Hope you have a wonderful day!
