Hope all my readers are doing well.
May 18th, some may wonder?
I will not get into specifics but I wanted to say this, that each day or time, may be significant to one or another, for varies reasons.
For some it may be a beginning. Others, an end. For me, it’s neither a beginning or an end but a memory. Sometimes, with memories, we may not know how to feel or deal with the memory. Maybe, we wanted things to turn out different. Maybe, we don’t know how to move on from the memory. In either case, the picture that is posted is very significant.
It was sent to me by someone who will always be in my life no matter what or how the road turns or how bad the darkness may get. It was sent as a reminder that though there may have been a storm, what comes after may be just as beautiful. That picture shows light. Sometimes, things may seem dark but as I wrote before, at some point if you allow, there will be beauty beyond the storm and darkness.
In harmony with talking about darkness and seeing beauty, I will leave you all with this excerpt from what I think is my favorite book now
“i kept running away from my darkness until i understood that in it i would find my freedom” by Yung Pueblo-inward
So if the road turned without you seeing it, or maybe you did see the turn but didn’t imagine it to take you in a certain direction, and things seem blurry or dark, wait for it.
The beauty will come!
Hope you all enjoyed.
It’s been a little over a week since I’ve been back from what hopefully one day will be my home. I still haven’t unpacked because unpacking will make it seem so final.
My trip, while short, was wonderful and relaxing. I got to spend time with family which for most, is always great.
I went to surprise my brother and boy was he surprised. My brother is the second man I came to love when I came into this place we call a world. He reminds me a lot of my father so I guess that is why I have always been drawn to him.
The weather was great. Rained just a little bit on one of the days but then it turned into a nice sunny day.
The trip made me have a chance to really think about what I want in life and the changes that I need to make in order to get them. While being with my family was great, it was even greater being on the plane up above from it all. Flying has always been something I marvel at because you’re seeing the clouds and the sun rising and setting. It is something that is beautiful beyond words.
While there I did get to take some pictures in which I will share. Some may have seen them already but for those who didn’t, hope you enjoy.
Since I have been into quote these days, I will leave you guys with this one.
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…..” -Dr. Seuss
