Last night, while enjoying an outdoor venue in the thriving countryside, I was struck at how in my forty-seven years on this planet, my comeback has been epic. Amidst the twinkling stars and the wonderful company, it was evident I am alive in my life. You might reread that sentence and wonder what I am referring to, but in essence it means I am present. I am fully awake. No longer am I sitting in my setbacks, but rather accepting the now and soaking in it.
Along the way, I lost some momentum which I realized had a lot to do with the company I was keeping. Instead of surrounding myself with dramatic individuals who are too busy worrying about what other people are saying and doing, I seek those who empower. The people that spark something within me. The people that stop, listen, and hear what I am saying even if they don’t agree with it.
I don’t want to be stuck in the almost life. I want to be sunning myself in the light of a crazy, messy, fascinating, unexpected, full on LIFE! We are all miracles in motions. When we can shed the need of being a hostage of someone else’s opinion, then we are free to live the life that is intended. I am no longer living my life in a whisper, but instead turning up the volume. It is all about choices. Today’s decisions are tomorrow’s reality.
