Here I am! Borrowing a laptop tonight so I can write, relate and release all the thoughts in my heart. If you’re on downelink you can look me up and find me blogging there about my dating adventures and evolution into… ~wink~
But right now I’d like to do some envisioning for my life. Right now I’m doing FINE…Working on my goals, back in school, trying to get a new car, hoping for a breakthrough so I can spend more time with my kids. Man… Listen to this though..
Yesterday I was aching for some inspiration so I got on my little phone and went to google and started googling successful people and I came across this bio for Mother Theresa. It detailed her adventures as a missionary but one line stood out to me.
It read: She spent 15 years as a teacher.
Um…really? 15 years of her life reduced to just ONE SENTENCE? WOW!
You mean, the nights she yearned for companionship..the days she spent praying over her students…the days when she had her period and the cramps wouldn’t go away… all of that was insignificant?
Think about today’s joys and worries… Why do they seem so HUGE when in our biographies, they won’t even be mentioned? Who’s gonna write about you failing your math class when that led you to focus on your writing and you became a best selling author? Who’s gonna write about you being depressed over a break up when you end up spending 40 plus years with the man (or woman) of your dreams?
The little stuff doesn’t matter that much but we make it the end of the world when we experience it today.
Nothing is permanent. Everything is temporary. In fact, today is just ONE LETTER in an entire sentence that describes a huge chunk of your life.
It’s just random occurrences that lead you to the life you EXPECT. Let’s try not to push and pull for what we WANT and just go with the flow of life.. No one can sabotage us. No one can hold us back. No one can stop us but US.
Surprises await us around every corner. Let go of the things that aren’t trying to hold on to you. Walk away from the things that make you miserable. Release the anger associated with demands you put on people.
ANd BE HAPPY..
Happy that you are alive and have a functioning mind and you can STILL be who you want to be…
I won’t be one of those people who says, “I could have been so much more if only I had tried.” Shit! I’m gonna try every day. I’m gonna try again and again and again until I master that shit.
Fuck the little stuff…
