uncommon hours. . .

welcome to "uncommon hours"

“If one advances confidently in the direction of (her) dreams, and endeavors to live the life which (she) has imagined, (she) will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”                                          Paraphrased from Henry David Thoreau

In the 19th century when Thoreau reflected about life in his cabin near Walden Pond, he probably wasn’t thinking about women. In those days, women put the care of others ahead of themselves. Some of us still do and want to, which takes up most of our lives, and while we are in our prime.

In this day and age, as many of us find ourselves with children who have grown up or with careers that have run their course, we look around at ourselves and feel vaguely that something is missing. Even if we have most of what we always wanted. Or, if it doesn’t come close.

Either way, we have not had a chance nor had the time to realize these yearnings. It could be a book you wanted to write. Or books you always meant to read. Learn to play the piano. Or, finally make “Boeuf Bourguignon” from Julia Child’s recipe. Raise a garden with your favorite plants or have fun with animals like the pet you once had.

Look inward to your intuition. And rely on yourself to be fulfilled.

This, in a nutshell, is the purpose of this website: to relate about what we hear from our inner voice. When we pay attention we wake up feeling joy because we are taking care of our own contentment.

This website invites you to tell your story and by sharing, inspire others to follow their own path.
