    I've felt like this for years.

    It's frustrating!!! I've tried to take different paths, to see if I can fill this void but so far nothing. I'm constantly trying new things to see if something will just fall into place. Sometimes I fear that the thing missing from my life is me.

    There is in every true woman's heart,

    a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity. - Washington Irving Quotes
