Taking Your First Steps

Take that first step in living your dream. It's always that first step that's the scariest. Not knowing what will happen and where it will take you may keep you from moving at all. But getting all that you deserve at the end is worth the anxiety of not knowing. How much will it take to venture forward? You are stronger than you believe yourself to be. Have faith that all you desire is just around the corner waiting for you. No one knows better than you what you want out of life.
Take a leap of faith...

How many first steps have I had that's taken me where I am today? Too many, yet not enough.

Finding What You Are Looking For

It's not often that you find what you're looking for. In fact, it may be that you're not even certain what it is that you've misplaced. The only thing you're certain of is that what ever it was it's now filled the missing piece in your heart. We all have something that makes us incomplete. We live our lives as we should, but if there is something more we could do or get it would make things so much easier. So we continue to live our life with as much enthusiasm that we have. Then comes the day when you say, "Oh my god, this is what's been missing!" When that moment comes, acknowledge that it's part of your life experiences. It's just part of what makes you who you are. Cherish all of these special moments. Finding what helps you grow, be fulfilled, be at peace is all that you need, if only at this time.
Blow and make a wish...

With all the changes this year has brought, it's knowing that everything is here for a purpose that makes me smile. For even if I don't know the purpose the universe will reveal it very soon. If there is one thing I've learned it's that the universe is as impatient as I am.

Life's Eternal Dance

Sometimes it gets frustrating when every step you move forward, you take three steps back. Although each step you take seems a momentous, moving in the opposite direction can be discouraging. But in the long run,although it's difficult to believe you are where you're supposed to be. Because it's not in the movements that you gauge your life, but the special moments that you experience. It's those breath taking seconds that time seems to stop that make everything else seem to disappear. Think of life as an everlasting dance that you are having with the universe. Moving back and forth to the music that only you can hear can be mesmerizing. Believe that the steps you take, whether going backwards or forwards only bring you closer to your desires. So take joy in where ever you should find yourself that you are participating in life's eternal dance.
Dance in the sunlight...

I never thought of moving forward and backwards as a dance, but I guess it could be. Not being a dancer it just seems irritating. But for all you dancers, take joy in knowing that this is up your alley. You are so graceful in your movements.

Taking Time

I'm going to take my time to smell the roses. To slow down when I walk because running doesn't seem to get me to where I'm going any faster. Life has been a blur for awhile, that everything looks the same. Funny when I actually make an effort to take the time to look around, things begin to take on other meaning. Everything becomes much more clearer. Suddenly, it's okay to just be where I am. My senses are capturing all the things that I've been missing. Taking my time, I can now do all the things that I've wanted to do but never thought I could fit in my busy schedule. I'm not sure what the reason is but capturing the moment is what is needed at this time. As the world spins around us, let's just be present to enjoy life.
Everything comes in it's own time...

Slowing down takes effort on my part. Being a Type A, it's difficult to change my pace. But life has a way of changing all things, even me.

I Will Wait For You

Will you be there when I need someone to lean on? Will you be there when I need someone to listen to my silly stories? Will you be there when I need a friend who I can trust? There are times when the feeling of being alone is overwhelming even if I am surrounded by many. Their voices just melt into one, I walk on my path with no direction. Although the world continues to revolve, it moves without me. I envision what can be and I dream of desires beyond what I could ever speak of out loud. It's knowing that I exist for a purpose even more than I can imagine. And in finding my purpose, there you are ready to walk next to me helping me achieve the impossible. I continue on my journey as I wait for you to join me.
There is a reason that we believe...

I think as I walk on my path, there are many who will join me on my journey even if for just a day. But it's during that time that I will experience such wonderful moments. There are so many pure spirits around me just waiting to make me smile.

I Will Be There For You

You don't know me yet, but I want to be there to help you. I want to lift you up on your worst days. I want to bring you happiness when you least expect it. I'm part of your destiny. I am part of who you are. Although you seem to be getting by these days, you'll be surprised at how wonderful the future can be if you just believe. Believe that all that is possible is just around the corner. That you will receive all the support you need to continue your journey. Life isn't supposed to be so dark and filled with misty clouds all the time. Let the sun shine through every once and awhile and you will see me waiting for you with a smile that lights up the sky.

Everything is possible...

Every day the universe brings me people that make my life just that much more special. Today, I met a couple who not only cared for my son while he was in Boston, but made him part of their family. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. Thank you L & A!
