I found a quote from a book that I read a couple of years ago. The book, itself wrecked me. But these words, read yesterday in a moment of... deep realizations, touched me where I am at this moment in my story.

"Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living."

~ Jonathan Safran Foer

Not to be depressing, just trying to hold on to these moments of "revelation". I may need to revisit this later when I find myself wondering why I should bother. There is so much I want, deeply desire, to do. I have limited myself. Fighting for these things to be possible for me is the "Why".
