It, did. It had me.


“From the beginning I had a sense of destiny, as though my life was assigned to me by fate and had to be fulfilled. This gave me an inner security, and though I could never prove it to myself, it proved itself to me. did not have this certainty, it had me.”

C. G. Jung, from Memories, Dreams, Reflections




  1. I wonder how many of us grown up with the sense that are we destined for something – whether it was unique or big or special in some undefined way. I think it offers some security and a lot of doubt – for it is often the things we do which we dismiss that have the most impact. Hope that makes sense – getting some more coffee now.


  2. Wow, this is a lot of contemplation before sun-up…..Need. More. Coffee.


  3. Reblogged this on Writing Out Loud and commented:
    Interesting combination of picture and quote. Tell us more David


  4. yes. and while it offers a certain level of comfort, it is also hard to accept at times. some resist it at all costs.


  5. I wish I had it…..


  6. I so wish to have it in me 😦


  7. It makes me think of what I have told people from time to time…with my youngest child having serious health issues from the time he was one year old. I’ve told people I was supposed to be the mom of this child…because I found out that I was someone strong enough to make this life journey with him. That was my destiny.


  8. So. Much.To.Ponder.


  9. It proved itself to me too. Not too many “what ifs”.


  10. Interesting. I have the original by Hodgkins which is far superior. Odd that the artists copied each other so exactly.
