2 o'clock A.M.

"Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.'"

-- Charles M. Schulz

Where do you get your quotes?
I love this quote though because I have heard a similar one used when working at a very intense summer camp. "Clarity Comes In The Process." I forget the name of who said it, but it took a while for it to sink in. This one? I get.
It takes time. Healing takes time. Clarity takes time. Knowledge can be gained in almost an instant, but wisdom is learned over a course of time and experience. Sometimes it's experiencing yourself and other times it's the experience of watching another's experience. (Ok, over use of the word.)
Long and short of it is: I wish a voice had told me it was going to take more than one night. I often asked myself that for nights without end. Well, lesson learned. Clarity comes in the more than one night process.
