From a Dark Place

I can't promise that I am going to be able to post anything of any worth anytime soon, and I honestly didn't expect to post tonight. But tonight, I heard this quote, as I came out of a deep sleep, blaring from the TV no less. And if it is from any known piece of work, I can't find it. But it spoke to me, so I am posting it, and it is now my email signature. There are sometimes when a quote like this can grab me when nothing else will. Words strung together in this way snag my heart.

I have learned lessons in the last few weeks that I wish no one had to learn, that I wish I didn't have to feel or think of. I have discovered things about myself, the people I bring into my life, and how my childhood has affected everything about me and who I am. I have learned that you can lose yourself in a moment if you aren't careful; if you aren't paying attention.

But, I digress. The quote:

"You will travel through the valley of rejection;
You will live in the land of morning mists;
And you will find your home-- though it will not be where you left it."

Glad to have you back-- I hope you continue to feel better! Call me if you need me.

So glad you're back Kim. I can totally see why this quote called out to you - I know you will find your way home, but it will take time.

I hope one of those lessons you learnt is that you have many, many people who care about you and the best friend anyone could ask for in Cassandra.

Take care - thinking you!

HUGS Paula

Good to see you here. I've been thinking about you and praying for you. I'll continue praying for you to find your way home.

Sometimes when we aren't paying enough attention to ourselves we get a giant cosmic wallop that forces us to. Get very quiet and listen to your heart. The answers are in there, I promise. A blanket and a starry night, perhaps?

Thinking of you.
