I was looking for the impossible…
To have my independence, yet share my dreams.
To stand on my own, yet have a strong hand to hold.
…and then I found you.
I’ve loved you from the first moment our eyes met.
In that split second my life made sense, my heart knew its match, and forever wasn’t enough.
With you… the impossible isn’t only possible, but a fact of life.
There’s not really all that much going on in life, but I am so upset and stressed out all the time. I just don’t really know what to do about it. I hate complaining to others, and especially hate complaining on here, but sometimes I feel like it’s the only sounding board I really have. I hate bogging others down with my problems when they have plenty of their own.
God gives us challenges and takes loved ones away because he wants us to know the meaning of each and every day we’re here. Nothing should be taken for granted. Every moment is unique and should be treasured. Know that the challenges you face are opportunities to learn. Tell those around you how much you love them. Give others a helping hand. Don’t blow out someone else’s light to let your own shine.
I hate it when people say “I need space.” But I do. I need some space. I need some wide open fresh air, away from work and school… somewhere I can focus on being ME, loving my life, and appreciating all the great things life has to offer. Somewhere I can practice patience and make time move slowly so that I can really enjoy the moment.
“Patience and time do more than strength or passion.”
—Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695), author, fabulist
I’m the kind of person that works very hard to achieve everything I want in life. And like everyone else in my generation, I want immediate gratification for my hardwork. It’s hard to operate at a slow & steady pace, but I know it’s really important to do so. Life isn’t a race, but a journey, so I’m going to focus on taking things sloooooooow so that every experience is meaningful.
“Every experience is a stitch in the fabric of your character.”
—Gary Clausing; musician
I love Fall. Crisp, beautiful fall days complemented by gorgeous red, orange, and yellow fall leaves. AND pumpkins. And corn harvesting, drinking cider, dressing up for Halloween, eating gobbs of candy, haunted houses, candy corn, sitting out by the fire, football, and sweatshirt ‘n flip-flops weather.
I flew into Providence, RI tonight for a team development session I'm facilitating tomorrow. I think I have everything pulled together, so its time for bed. Sweet dreamz!!
