As many Boomers did, I followed a pretty linear route through life. I got married young after school, worked hard, went to college, bought a house, had children and got divorced. That is the surface story. Underneath there is another one. Though I wouldn't share it here, I like this story because I got to write parts of it instead living out familial history and wondering why "things" turn out the way they did. It truly is a "long slow journey from the inside out" but worth it is all I'll say. I'll tell you the author of the quote when I see you. I venture to say I am more than a bit evolved as a result.
I am not one for public declarations of this or that as I do have a little bit of a private side but thankfully not enough to fill a single page in People magazine. I leave that to the beautiful, dysfunctional celebrities I see on my way out on the supermarket check out line. The true joy and contentment I feel and enjoy are heightened by my own awareness of it.
I was a career INTJ but eventually became an ENFP.
Some favorite quotes are:
"Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future."
"When you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything."
