The right things at just the right time.

(Thank you Ally.)


“You are exactly where you are supposed to be. If you are happy, revel in it. Appreciate the moment.

If you are unhappy; take note. Try to figure out what you are supposed to be learning in this moment.

For each and every moment woven together over time is your life. Each moment matters. Each moment has something beautiful to teach us.”

Perfect, right?  I believe that this can apply to all of us. 

I truly believe that there is no ceiling to our own personal best, I believe that we can go higher, and once we think we’ve hit our best, we go beyond that even. 

We learn during the whole process.

Good or bad.

I like to look back on these last few months, four of them to be exact, as I have been learning a lot, like so much, I thought my head was going to explode.  Now that the fog has lifted, and I see the whole experience with so much more clarity, I can see just what there was to be learned, and what I learned about myself.

Almost as important, I have learned who I can count on and trust, who has helped me learn and grow.

I am thankful to know who I am.  I am thankful to be comfortable and confident again in my own skin.  Most importantly, I have learned that I am just who I am for a reason, and I should never try to change that to please others, I should never abandon myself, who I am or what I believe to try to make a few happy.

Looking back on that time, how I viewed it while walking through it, it was dark and mostly lonely,  from where I sit right now, the future looks bright and beautiful!

So not lonely.

Your welcome girl! It spoke to me also because I had that fog over me too.

I read this quote and thought you would like it!
"I know there is poor and hideous suffering, and I've seen the hungry and the guns that go to war. I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks....Why would the world need more anger, more outrage? How does it save the world to reject unabashed joy when it is joy that saves us? Rejecting joy to stand in solidarity with the suffering doesn't rescue the suffering. The converse does. The brave who focus on all things good and all things beautiful and all things true, even in the small, who give thanks for it and discover joy even in the here and now, they are the change agents who bring fullest Light to all the world"

. -Ann Voskamp, excerpt from One Thousand Gifts
