… I carried heavy sadness with me, the kind of sorrow that comes when you stop dreaming. Curled up next to Terrell one night, I thought about staying in bed forever.
I’ll never forget what he said to me: “What happened to the girl I married? The one who was going to change the world?”
My words hammered in my chest. “I don’t even dream of changing the world anymore. I just want to survive it.”
His response filled our bedroom. “We used to be dreamers. What happened to us?”Life happened. (Rhinestone Jesus by Kristen Welch)
My sweet spot wasn’t exactly a success story. I think we often confuse glory with something glorious. Nothing really changed, not for a long time. But I had changed. I was pursuing my passion. I was living an authentic life. I was satisfied, and that changed everything. (Kristen Welch, Rhinestone Jesus).
