She Lived…

“She lived without much thought for the future. She made do with what she had, enjoyed her friends and always lived a notch or two this side of too much hope.
 Those who knew her would describe her as happy more than not, but because her interests were moderate in a world gone mad with desire, they for the most part, considered her strangely out of step with reality.”….Richard  Stein

      I’ve been reading quite a bit lately here in the blogosphere about the feeling of not fitting in.  I came across this quote in my mid twenties and it just hit home.

7 weeks by the grace of God.

  1. 7 weeks is wonderful.
    I have times where I don’t feel as if I fit in.
    I really think it’s a harder thing for some of us. Other people, like my hubs, never have these feelings.
    Wishing you peace.

    1. Thank you, Wendy. I do have peace; more than I have had in a long while. Even though I still feel like an alien at times, “fitting in” isn’t as important to me when I’m sober. Stronger in every way. 🙂
