...of finding the sense of life within.

We've heard it said that if you don't go within, you will go without. We are all completely unique and marvelous each in our own way and not one of us is like another. Though we may have similar preferences, not one other person shares your unique mix of what makes you feel alive. Your history, your perceptions, your attitudes, your preferences, your hopes, wishes and dreams. Finding a sense of life within is embracing those things; embracing that mix of unique characteristics that make you, YOU. It takes courage to embrace those things. It takes even more courage to bring it out into the world for all to see. Many of us walk in the shadow of society that tells us what we should like, what we should want and how we should spend our resources. Many of us experience the feeling of being left out or simply not included if we are constantly looking to "fit in". I love the scene in Monster in Law when she says, "I'm making the dress to fit MY body, not the other way around." As we journey together, let's find ways to Find a Sense of Life Within and encourage one another to bring all that wonderful, colorful stuff out. That's when we truly appreciate and enjoy what Life has to offer us in the way of opportunities. Going within and embracing what's truly there, is what brings fulfillment, peace, a sense of well-being and joy. Life's gift of Time is what provides us the means of the Discovery of Ourselves.
