To Get Mushy In Warm Weather, And To Call Myself Beloved

“And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth”.
[Raymond Carver]

I think warm weather is rubbing off on me, because I have been slowly turning into mush. Self-love letters, accepting compliments, and being awesome, and becoming even more awesome. Blech. I’ll need to write an angry rant soon, just to balance things out. People skipping burpees at a Spartan Race, anyone?

Ahhhh… There. I feel better.

I’ve been musing about all things mission statements, and life purpose in the last six months or so. So far, the above quote from Raymond Carver seems like a great place to start.

beloved by myself
