Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. -Harold Whitman

"More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity." -Francois Gautier

i think this applies to every woman, we all crave clarity.  to know our purpose, our mission, our role.  i don't need to know where things are going, the grand design or the plan, i  just need to know what i am supposed to be doing.  i feel most lost and touchy and snappy when i don't know what i am supposed to be doing.

i also don't like it when i attend multitudes of appts and events for my kids but they can't go to one eye doctor appt without pitching a royal fit, because i need to get new glasses that aren't scratched and giving me an eye strain headache and they owe me one . . . since their impatient whining led to the damage of the glasses in the first place.

ok so that second paragraph isn't inspiring, but it does make me think a lot, how i am ready to be able to put myself first while they are at school. how i am yearning for it despite not admitting it aloud.  how i am ready for them to be more responsible and selfless, they are only 6 and 4.5, and we are on our first non-vacation day, but it was hurtful all the same.
