How Still Can You Be?

No matter how fast the world revolves around you and life seems to be slipping away, there is a moment where there is clarity. An understanding that all that is happening is just a part of what needs to be. Even if it's only for a second that everything seems to stop, it's at the moment that you can breath. Although being still is an effort in this crazy world, you can do it knowing that peace comes in that second. It's within this time that everything comes together and you can rejuvenate your tired spirit. Celebrate these elusive moments with all the joy that is within you.
 A Moment in Time

I don't always have clarity in what the universe has planned. I think that's the way it's supposed to be. But when everything comes together every once and awhile, I'm at peace for then I know that I'm on the right path.

Where Do I Begin?

When you are running so far behind, how do you begin to catch up? Do you go back to the very point that you left off? How would you remember ever detail that you've experienced? Every memory that was so important at that point. But that is what they become, just a memory. How can you recapture all that has passed? Or maybe that's what life is about. Not about remembering the past, but living the present. Giving all you have to live life. You hear it all the time to live in the present, but sometimes some of us get stuck in all of our "should haves" and "could haves". It seems easier to go back and live our past over and over again to perfect it in our minds. But that's where it will remain, in the past never to be redone. So again I ask you, where do you begin? I guess there is no better time than now. To do better, to be better, to live as much as possible with no regrets. With what little control you have over life, it is your life to live as you choose.

Life Is As Beautiful As The Koolaus

These days I am asking more questions than waiting for answers. I know in my heart that the answers will come within their own time. But I have to ask before I forget what the question is. Isn't life about learning than it is about knowing everything. Everyday brings a blessing, I just have to find it within 24 hours.
