Grateful for The Quest

A long search for something, a longing that we all deeply desire to fulfill. The Quest to where? The Quest for what? The Quest for who?

I’ve been in limbo now for about eight months, wondering which direction I am headed.  Many times, I have said to myself, this is it!  I am on the right path, and many times, I have been disappointed as the path took a detour, not planned by me.  What do I do now?  Where to now?  While the adventure is just that…an adventure, I wouldn’t say that it has been overly exciting.  It is a challenging time for me so I must ask myself, “Do I belong here?” Read more
