Destiny. . .

I use to ride the Metro-North train up to my grandparents house in Connecticut, in the cold snowy winters. To me, the train ride always seemed to be the best part. Gazing outside as the snow drifted along the tracks, and people boarded on and off. It was on these rides I would find myself deep in thought. What did destiny mean to me, would always be a popular discussion in my mind. It confused me as a young girl, because I always thought of destiny as a destination. I always wondered what it would feel like when I reached my destiny, and when that moment came, would that be the only light I would see in my life. As I grew older, I began to realize destiny was more than one destination, it was the moments occurring now. Destiny can be heartache, deep love, unfortunate decisions, happiness, self-discovery or sadness. We have to live each moment, learning each lesson, and learning each person we meet so we can link them all together to create a chain. As we connect each of these defining moments in our lives, we create our destiny. Destiny isn’t some destination or one shining moment for the world to see us how we are, but instead it is present, where we are now.

Who are we?

Sometimes we live our lives like puzzle pieces turned upside down – only showing the world our gray sides. Then along comes life, and it starts flipping them over, showing to us and the world more than just the outline of who we are – it shows us the colors. If we can start to turn more over and put them together, we can see the picture of who we really are emerge.

I’ve thought time and time again about the things I post as being a reflection of me. Although we have not yet met, some how there is a strange connection between reading these blogs, and knowing the person behind them. I thought of listing things you don’t know about me, but then I realized that you don’t need to see my driver license to know me. You know what’s deep down inside of me, and you see my depth daily.  It is these blogs and you, who help me turn my gray puzzle pieces around. Your understanding, your caring souls, and your inspiring stories. I am grateful for each and every one of you who take the time to read, and I am so thankful to have you in my life. You are just as important as the friends I text daily, and I hope that in return I give you half of what you’ve given me!

Thankful

Sunday Special!

As the weekend is winding down, I have decided to come to my WordPress friends and share a new discovery with you. I have had quite the storm these past 9 weeks, but on Friday night I went to see ‘The Other Woman.’ The movie had me in tears of laughter from start to finish. It was exactly what I needed. Not only was I able to laugh with my best friend, but I completely connected with a song in this movie. I want to share these lyrics with you on this very special Sunday, and also remind that you are never alone, I am always here with you!

 

Every high and every low you’re gonna go through
You don’t have to be afraid I am with you
In the moments you’re so weak you feel like stopping
Let the hope you have light the road you’re walking

You’re gonna make it
You’re gonna make it
The night can only last for so long

Whatever you’re facing
If your heart is breaking
There’s a promise for the ones who just hold on
Lift up your eyes and see
The sun is rising

Even when you can’t imagine how
How you’re ever gonna find your way out
Even when you’re drowning in your doubt
Just look beyond the clouds

Just look beyond the clouds

Whatever you’re facing
If your heart is breaking
There’s a promise for the ones who just hold on
Lift up your eyes and see
The sun is rising
