WOW!!! I so admire the forthright way you are dealing with yourself and your thoughts often echo what I think and feel when in my introspective mood. One thing that is first and foremost is distinguishing between what I really want/need and that of others or society. I am so encouraged by this post as often I am discouraged by things but this is so refreshing. Now I need to get on with today which is obviously the only time I can take action and pursue the things that are important to me. Thanks so very, very much!
