Quote for the Day

"I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words, each hour, each day, every day, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person."
-Og Mandino

I am going to ask you a question, kinda like Dear Abby, because you have an insight and a life perspective that most of us don't have. I think others might also enjoy your thoughts.

Here goes. Dear Jenni, I am in a long-term marriage and am very unhappy. My spouse and I are like brother and sister rather than a married couple. We don't fight much but we don't enjoy the joys of a happy marriage. I don't think that will ever change. We have two children, both teenagers. I feel trapped. I know you have a unique understanding of feeling trapped. Any thoughts? I am so afraid that I will hurt my children and be a failure in others eyes if I ask for a divorce. Signed, "In a Quandary".

If you like answering these types of life questions, let us know. Maybe some of your other readers have questions too. Take care.

Dear anonymous,

that's a good question, and I would love to give you advice. However, it's not something I would typically answer on my blog. I'm assuming you want to remain anonymous, but if you could e-mail me then I can e-mail you my response. It might be easier to talk back and forth that way. Let me know.
