What can I say? The view from where I am standing is glorious,  the sun is suspended in the sky and my thoughts are in mid air, revolving around the erupting volcano that from millions of miles away warms my face. I have taken a pause, a deep breath that fills my lungs with gratitude and reflection.

As I take it all in I realize that I have so much more left to go. So many more miles to crawl, run and walk. But the stop along the journey is necessary,  to relfect on where I am and to gather strength to go forward. Pause and then continue.

It has taken a lot of sweat, blood and tears to get to where you are. You have sacrificed time and energy into your work.  Many have doubted you and even more have taken an opportunity to try to knock you down. You have collected some along the way who have joined you on your path and become your warriors. You have also dropped off some along the way, realizing that this is their stop. Time and time again you have tripped and bloodied your knees – but you got back up. At other times some may have cut you down to stop you from getting to where you are supposed to be. You tended to your wounds and may have ignored some lacerations, hoping to forget and forgive. As you take in all that has happened and all that you have become, there is so much more to get to.

In choosing to go forward, you are defying all of your doubters. Laughing as you walk past your critics, sport a smile big as their sour faces express their disdain. There will always be someone who will not enjoy or congratulate your accomplishments, allow their critique to be an opportunity to check yourself, but don’t let it deter you. You aren’t perfect and it is expected that you will make mistakes, guess what – mistakes are always allowed as long as they are not mal-intentioned.

Choose to keep going because life has so much in store for you. Because fate has been preparing you through trials and turbulence – building a stronger, wiser and better you. Don’t shut down or shut out, embrace it all because further along in your journey it will all start to make sense. Big hug!

  1. It seems like a we are on a giant hamster wheel at times…just when you think you’ve made great progress, you can get thrown right back to Square One. I think the most important thing is to keep moving, no matter what. Beautiful words here, I thank-you!

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! Get off the hamster wheel by learning the lessons that life is attempting to teach you, if you don’t you end up back where you started! All the best!

  2. Bonjour SHASHA

    Je ne suis pas tous les jours présent

    Mais mon
    Amitié partagé est une douceur
    Qui apaise le cœur
    Mon amitié est une tendresse
    Comme on reçoit une caresse
    Mon amitié est du bonheur
    Ce bonheur je te le partage avec mon cœur
    Et je te fais une grande place d’honneur
    Mon amitié est un plaisir
    Comme si c’était mon sourire
    J’aime te dire merci pour ta confiance
    Belle et douce journée
    Belle semaine
