I read this a long time ago, but alot of it has stuck with me. It’s a hard read. It is a book that really gets you thinking about your patterns (most of us have them), especially in regards to what I call (maybe the book does too?), ‘the blame game’. It is much easier to look outward when we are dissatisfied with out lives than it is to pause and self-reflect and to take responsibility for what we ourselves, can do to improve our lives. As I said, this is not an easy book, its actually an uncomfortable read, but I believe it is a helpful for many people. It has been many years since I read it, but it is actually a book I am thinking I will re-read.
The kind of love I always wanted. They say nobody gets everything. I have come believe that is true. (life is bittersweet). I have had the best types of love with my son, precious animals and family. Despite being too ill to do too much or travel, I have had something else, time, lots of time to do my arts and crafts, (I’m not always well enough to do even that, but usually I can do something from my bed). I have had the freedom of peace without people picking away at me, controlling me , suffocating or being intentionally cruel. Still this song is dreamy and I just love it. Maybe in the next life?
