    Joyfully Unaccomplished?

    Below is something that I wrote a few months ago and posted on a community forum in which I felt safe, understood and embraced. I wrote it in an attempt to reach out, connect and get some perspective but not one person responded. Not a one. Because I had bore so much of my soul...
