Been filled with a bit of strife lately. Don't know how to squelch it but I've been on a soap box at work, on my blog, and everywhere else imaginable. As a youngster, I marched, protested, advertised, editorialized, and was quite the activist, as in my youth I should've been. I've held signs to the nation's capitol, the state capitol, and on many occasion, lent my voice and opinion on matters close to my heart and home.
I'm tired. I'm sick of the "drama", the mindset that nothing matters and quite frankly have grown tired of beating my head against the wall that is society, government, and more importantly, friends and family.
At this point, I am seeking a cave to crawl into and hibernate. As I said, I am tired. I found some quotes from 2Girls, which is an incredible site. Made me feel warm and good and valued as a person. We are not alone in this struggle. There are hundreds upon thousands out there fighting the good fight and in the next generations to come, this will be just another civil struggle in the school books that we will be victorious over and I will be proud within to know I was a part of it.
To begin this week on a positive note, some words of encouragement:
To love a person is to learn the song that is in their heart, and to sing it to them when they have forgotten. - Anonymous
Waiting for circumstances to change so you can feel good is like looking in a mirror waiting for your reflection to smile first.- Bashar
Love at first sight is easy to understand; it's when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetïme that it becomes a miracle. - AmyBloom
