I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want to? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones, and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.

I truly can relate to this quote from Mrs. Plath.
However, I want to add some words, if I may be this free...
Yes, we are all horrible limited and yes, this sometimes scares the hell out of me.
But no, I don't want this to make me feel limited. I want it to make me feel unlimited, because I can never read all the amazing books that are written, but I can read the beautiful books that cross my path and carry their words in my heart.
No, I can never be all the people I want to be, but I can be all the things I am and the things that are still hidden inside of me.
No, I will never be able to create all the beauty that other people can.
But, how beautiful is that?
We ALL create our own beauty and share it with others.
Yes, I am more than grateful for that.
