I feel the following two quotes exemplify how I plan to approach this new year, I want to live with self-awareness,and have my life controlled only by me and not be influenced by the expectations of others.

This above all,—to thine own self be true;
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man. William Shakespeare

The years that are gone seem like dreams—if one might go on sleeping and dreaming—but to wake up and find—oh! well! Perhaps it is better to wake up after all, even to suffer, rather than to remain a dupe to illusions all one's life.” Kate Chopin Awakening
New journal

  1. Amen I say to you sister! (that is from a movie!) To thine own self be true! Yes! Yes! Yes! P.S. Love your booklist. Elizabeth Lesser is going to be on Oprah twice in the next week or so. Have you ever been to Omega?

  2. Have you read Stephanie Kallos’ Broken for You? Wonderful especially for the artist in us all! And I dug out my Gunilla Norris books after you reminded me of them here. I love her!
