LIFE...This is My Journey

I look at my life in the sense of it being a journey.  I find myself striving to improve my soul and spirit daily.  I look for ways to improve my existence.  I take moments to listen, to hear and then to act.  I want to live now.  I strive for the experiences of today.  I believe....

I believe that I have an inner voice that I must listen too.  I believe that my life is ever changing in a world that remains the same.  I believe that my journey is mine.  I believe that there are those put into our lives to help us see life clearer.  I believe that we have a powerful force within each of us.  I yearn...

I yearn to find the joy in this life. I yearn to be a voice for good.  I yearn to be aware of my actions.  I yearn for knowledge.  I yearn to be accepted, to be loved.  I yearn to live each day to it's fullest with no regrets.  I know...

I know that my journey is what I make it.  I know that my decisions affect all those in my life.  I know that this life is not all that there is. I know that family is my driving force. I know that sometimes we let others down.  I know that we are only human.  I know that what I have done is what is right for me.  I will...

I will listen.  I will try to understand. I will acknowledge a higher power.  I will not fail.  I will choose to love.  I will, because that is me and I don't know any different.

I can't explain the whys? I don't have the answers.  I can't make you understand the inner clock that ticks within my soul.  I am who I am because He made me that way.  I can't make you understand.  I have to listen....

I have to listen to my life force, my spirit and my soul.  I have to listen to my family and their needs. I have to find the courage to make the changes necessary.  I have to not judge, not think I am better than others.  I have to understand, me, and only me first before I can be of any use to anyone else.

My journey has been......... powerful, uplifting, challenging, rewarding, defining, misunderstood, painful, soul wrenching, eye opening, transitioning and perfect.

I can only explain the last few years as an awareness of myself, my God, my soul.  I talk with Cory and together we are discovering that within ourselves lives a connection to this life.  A drive that is strong, in fact that we know that we are not in control.  Our peace is rich in joy, in love and acceptance.  Acceptance of who we are, where we are, what this life  has in store for us.  An acceptance of our journey. An acceptance of our children just as they are.  Acceptance that we can make a difference.

Our lives are richly blessed, and for this , I am eternally grateful.

Thank you old friends, new friends and family.  You encourage me, inspire me and knock me off of my feet sometimes.  Keep up the good work.  Enjoy this life!
