My new favorite line ever... EVER!

"What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you."- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Now if I could only figure out how to find out if its true...


  1. Wow jss!
    That's a great quote...
    Best of luck in finding out if i's true! It's hard figuring that kind of thing.
    Thank you so much for your kindness to me... The comments show an understandng that I don't seem to find from many and I am almost frightened to speak becaue of that.
    Your sense of integrity and your absolute honesty about how tough it can be give me courage.
    Thank you. x

  2. It is my new favorite quote, or I should say my first ever favorite quote (I never really was much for quotes or life affirming mottos) because I'm finding out that there are things inside of us I never knew about. My hope is that it is more true than I could have ever imagined, and in ways I could never have imagined.
    As for the kindness, don't mention it. I do understand, I will say only that there were some very hard years for me, years where I felt I was hanging on by only a thread. I think I am coming out the other side now but it has required one hell of an expenditure of energy. And I have been in a place where platitudes and positive thinking counted for absolutely nothing - they only take you so far. Problem is sometimes we are pushed past that point and then we're left feeling as if the well has completely run dry. It is a scary place to be, where you know the difficulty isn't over but you feel as if you have nothing left with which to survive. I do understand. Keep making the decision to continue to seek help. Don't leave that on the table.
