Finding Myself

I held that belief often... disappearing would be best. I spent a lot of time exiling.  Sometimes I needed peace and quiet, most times because I was overwhelmed with everything and everyone.

Being found is romantic, but I have come to realize that being found is really an inner focus.  I wanted to find myself. I wanted to give myself permission to live the life of my dreams away from what other folks thought I should do.

Sometimes I thought I wanted to disappear, but all I really wanted was to find myself.

Greetings Sister Lovebabz!

I love this post and relate to it so.

"Window Seat" by Erykah Badu comes to my mind when I read this.

Wanting to retreat, wanting to exile but wanting peace and inner direction.

I feel you sister.
