Yesterday, after working out in the morning, I spent about an hour overlooking the water and doing some reports for work. Intermixed in that I contemplated life and took a moment to think about my youth and what I experienced. Never in a million years did I think I'd be where I am right now. If I were to be honest with you, and that IS my goal with this blog....I spent many days wishing I were dead. Can you imagine the pain of a 13 and 14 year wishing she wasn't good enough to breath the air of her peers. It was tough, but my faith in God kept me breathing and dreaming. Today here I am and I AM ABLE! It's absolutely amazing.
No, I haven't accomplished all of the things that I want for myself but I haven't given up trying. I haven't given up trying or hoping to have my own child. I haven't given up trying or hoping to have my own home. I haven't given up trying or hoping to meet someone who not only loves me but who has the core ideologies and dreams that makes him a strong man. Nope I haven't given up. I haven't given up trying and hoping that my baby bro becomes the man that I dreamed he would be all those years ago. I haven't given up trying and hoping that my little bro achieves all of the things that he strives for and that he ultimately lives a life filled with love and happiness. Nope I haven't given up.
So, as I sit here typing at what is now 6:33, all I can do is think about is how awesome my life is. I hope that if you're reading this you too take a moment over your coffee, juice, tea or hot chocolate and think yeah so is mine. Life isn't about getting everything you want at once. There are things in life you have to work for and put in the effort for. My experience is that those who get everything without working hard for it, live an empty life devoid of the possibilities of greatness. Money and things don't make you great. Love and happiness make you great. With that the "things" will come. Put peace of mind and contentment at the forefront of your thoughts today. Within that frame of thinking you would discover the ultimate meaning of life.
Have a great day and take a moment to thank yourself for living. And if you don't think you're living....take a moment to ask why?
I Love You,
