Sometimes my mind wonders and dwells on the past, focuses on the future, but not living for the moment.
“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”
“Forever is composed of ‘nows’ ”
This year has opened my eyes to a light that has burned through the many years of darkness that I have had to overcome to get to where I am now. A person starts to doubt themselves and their purpose when they work so hard for so long but do not see the results. People around you tell you to be patient. Keep working hard. But you begin to wonder if you are the essence of insanity.
“Doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.”
Until you finally see that you were building an empire brick by brick. you were looking for the wall but you can never allow yourself to see it until you have laid all the individual bricks over a number of years.
1st brick…the people that come in and out of your life.
2nd brick…the opportunities that come that seem so menial but through the butterfly effect are creating your future through your now.
3rd brick…the pain you endure through and the fire that has burned away each layer of your being to show you how strong you are, how versatile you are becoming, and how much greatness lies within you if you are willing to strip away your pride and see yourself for who you really are.
and the 4th and the 5th and the….
“Life is a journey, not a destination.”
Then someone enters in your life that you could never imagine. Someone that seems a polar opposite but that completes you. Someone whos presence brings a level of joy that you cannot explain but only experience. Someone that proves to you that there is hope and someone is looking out for you. Someone that may not be within arms length but you know they are with you. Someone that allows you to forget about everything and frees you to “live for the moment.” Someone that shows you that words can only go so far but actions can take your emotions to the ends of the world and beyond. That prove that the horizon may seem unreachable but it is a point that with the right people/person, you will get there by overcoming the limitations that you place on yourself and your life.
I have always been a very positive and happy person but in the darkest moments, we all need a light to show us the way. Alone, a broken heart can be mended but it will always have holes. But the passion of the “right” person can help you find the pieces that you lost through the heartbreaks to help you not only feel but become whole again. This world was meant to enjoy with others. all people yearn for companionship, friendship, and acknowledgement. I pray that everyone will find “Someone.” because i know i have.
