I have been attempting to find the exact words to express the extent of my transition from my current life into my future.
This statement sums it up so well.

"I lived what most people call the good life. I was happy, but deep inside I always felt that, with the short amount of time we are given to live and love in the world, we spend too much time loving things instead of people." ~Antonia Brenner

It also makes me feel as though I am not alone in my quest for the simpler things in life.

  1. Objects we ardently pursue bring little happiness when gained; most of our pleasures come from unexpected sources. ~Herbert Spencer

    The things you own, start to own you. It's refreshing to see another person that feels as I do about it! :)

  2. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh love it!

  3. Gaelana (Golly)... this quote was posted thanks to your comments over at byw. I have yet to find my own words so I borrow these for now. Thank you.
