So here it is -- the QoD (get ready):
"The word that comes to mind is courage. Anyone can live by a formula. It's much harder to leave the straight and narrow. Yet many of us have found that we must leave. The imperative from deep within is too strong. Life beckons and to dishonor the call would be spiritual death."
- Dr. Marlene Winell
YES! Choose life. This makes me think of a song I have been listening to a lot recently:
"Well I was dying to leave this place I know. Traded it in for something I can relate to. I'll find out who I really am. It may take some time, but maybe that's okay, yeah. Trying to make my way past hope, do what I can with everything that I've been through. I'll take my chances to live again."
LOVE that song. (It's called "I Should Leave Right Now" by an angsty band called The Dangerous Summer).
Life beckons, but some do not heed the call. Many probably don't hear it.
I'll take my chances to live again, too.
