    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    Closer To God

    Closer to God is the only place I can be myself... without having to hide anything. Without maks or disguises. I am truly me, with all my flaws and with all the love I have inside.
