Everything Happens for a Reason
There are no mistakes, no missteps, no accidents ever. Everything that has ever occurred in my life has brought me to this place. A place more incredible than I ever could have imagined in my wildest dreams. When I look back at the road that lead me here I see a maze of people, places and events that you would never expect to culminate in such an amazing way.
The truly unbelievable part of all of this is that this is just the beginning. Everything that will come from this is a new and exciting part of my journey. Something unknown and unexpected but always wonderful beyond belief.
You Get What You Ask For
I smiled when I started writing this post today because the screen saver I have on my laptop is a picture I took while sitting at the shore of the Caribbean Sea in Mexico earlier this year. I had the same sense of wonder and awe that day and thought how lovely it would be to live in that environment. Now here I am, just six months later and have a stunning water view right outside my door.
I begin each day by sitting quietly, looking out at the water and end it watching the glorious sunset into the horizon. Sometimes it feels like a dream or a beautiful fantasy but it is real and I know that as I continue to appreciate all that there is, that there will be more.
It Just Gets Better and Better
It makes me laugh when I see how some of the pieces came together, not usually something I would have planned but always perfect for what needed to happen to get me to the next step.
That is something that I am learning, life doesn’t grow by leaps and bounds, it evolves one moment at a time. If you’re not paying attention it will disappear the same way.
Stop and Appreciate
Some people say that life is short and I suppose for some it can be. For me, it isn’t about the length but about the amount of joy that it brings. I have had so many different experiences in my life, some great and others truly painful but they all have given me the gift of what I needed to learn in order to grow and move on in my life and for that I am profoundly grateful. It makes it very easy to appreciate each and every thing because I know it always brings me to a better place.
One of the best lessons I am learning is how to be in the moment. It is hard for me not to feel like I should race on to the next thing at the speed of sound. The minute something good comes into my life I am so excited that I’m on to the next. What I’m beginning to realize is that if I’m going too fast I will miss the experience of having this perfect moment in time.
Right now I will try to stay where I am, right here, right now and savor every delicious moment.
