The Best Thing I Read This Week Is …

… from Toni Morrison in an article in the Guardian in 2012.  She demonstrates morrisonhow a true emotionally strong person operates:

I want to feel what I feel. What’s mine. Even if it’s not happiness, whatever that means. Because you’re all you’ve got.

  1. Perfect reminder of what’s what! Love these words of wisdom. Sometimes I get so sick of all of those seemingly eternally,perfectly “optimistic thinkers”. Yes, there are and will always be times in life when we feel down, unhappy, sad as well as other times when we feel good. And that’s alright, In fact that’s as it should be.

    Sometimes when we are feeling down that is when we have arrived at one of our crossroads in life ,and our realistically serious thoughts cause us to think out new directions and new ways.

    Thanks for another great and thought-provoking post, Melene.
