Amen my friend. To Thine Own Self Be True. You cannot be what others think you should be. You can try but only for a time. The real you comes out sooner or later. You will only be truly happy if you accept yourself and be who and what you are. Great job. God Bless and a big 7 from me. JB

That's probably two pages or more, as a document. And it's excellent, but it seems more worthy of being a story. Persistence pays off, so keep it up!

This is too good! It expresses the essence of what every parent should know. And so, you have not been here for a while, yet wherever you are, what a blessing you have left for us.

Hi, just stopped by after so many years. (noticed I was last active on here in 2012). Not to say I haven't been writing as I have got many writing pads filled and so have been my mobile phones! Loved this piece that you wrote and totally agree with the sentiment. /|\

You made a difficult concept so simplisticly profound! Yes we must all find our own unique purpose in life. I just love your thought, Jill
