''As long as anyone believes that their ideal and purpose
is outside them, that it is above the clouds, in the past
or in the future, they will go outside themselves and
seek fulfillment where it cannot be found.  They will
look for solutions and answers at every point except
where they can be found--in themselves. '' Erich Fromm
Our fulfillment is up to us, and us only.  Only we can bring ourselves to a point at which we're at peace with who we are and what we're doing.  Only we can find a space in which the things that happen around us don't bring us down or put us in a bad mood or frustrate us to no end.

I add this as a reminder for those who struggle like me, this is what I dream of, hope one day this will be something I do day....


  1. I wonder if there is anyone who doesn't struggle with this! Very thought provoking post!

  2. We all struggle with this at different points in our lives and then suddenly, one day you are living what you have worked towards. It does happen...sometimes you just have to give up the "struggle" and say "I am going to be" and you begin to live it. I know that you will.

  3. It starts when you open your eyes...everyday when I wake up and put my feet on the floor and I am able to dress myself, it is a GOOD DAY!..Then when I lay myself down in my comfy bed at night and peacefully drift off to sleep, it has been a GREAT DAY! Everything that happened in between is just life!

  4. Lovely to read and very thought provoking. Thank you Kathy. x

  5. Know that you're not alone... I, myself like yourself have this struggle... so if you ever have the need to reach out to someone you can always reach out to me.. Peace, Love, Joy & many blessings 2 U, Marlene ;O) xo
