I'm pretty sure I read that quote somewhere in the CD forum. If it's your words - I want to give you credit. I have been in a real funk - like many hereabouts. Partly the holidays, partly the empty nest, and other stressors I haven't shared. Yesterday was a particularly difficult day for me. Who knows why. But, this quote just kept running around my head. "Find the courage to life your own life". So, I decided to make a really nice candle light dinner for me and hubby. He was so pleasantly surprised. The entire evening was wonderful. I had to force myself to forget about my kids, my mom, etc. I had to force myself to find my own enjoyment. It was an epiphany of sorts - which I am not articulating very well. My admonishment to myself - to you - to us all - is to find the courage to live your own life. However that looks and whatever that means. Create those moments that you enjoy. Be good to you. And to whomever spoke those words - "Find the courage to live your own life" - thank you.
