She looked into her mirror and realized she had lost her way, a lost soul. She is, she has stopped believing in her self and second-guessing her abilities. At her current age, she should be more confident and more self-aware. What has changed?
Every day has become hum, drum, pretty ritualistic with no spontaneity. Work is work, and she continues to work it to no end.
For the average person looking in, they see success and happiness: a good job and a good marriage, a loving family.
The reality the picture is dark with constant arguments, not being listened to but claiming she does not pay attention. She is distracted, longing for a different life. No one knows her true feelings, she plays the I am alright game, but she is crumbling slowly.
This week she has decided to venture forth seeking new opportunities to fill her soul, to find happiness in what she creates and what she does. She is striving to get rid of the emptiness she feels inside and has felt for a bit. It is sad!
Alas, she will find her soul to be whole. It will take hard work and perseverance, but in the end, accomplished!
