I don't know about you
but from time to time
I feel alone.
Not sure what's going to happen.
As hard as it feels
dealing with family, friends (foes), career, play, and on and on some more....
cause it feels hard right now.
Then I smile at the kindness in the hearts of others
they make my life feel easy and peaceful.
I work hard. I don't doubt my capabilities or my worth.
I've fallen a thousand times
and I keep getting up.
Maybe a few tears and scrapes.
Maybe a little slower than normal, but I keep going.
Why keep going when it hurts so much.... Because I Believe.
I believe in something better. And I learn.
Maybe that's why I enjoy running. It takes my breath away.
Sometimes I want to cry.
Sometimes I have to stop and tie my shoe (again).
Sometimes I grab a drink and spill it over me because I don't stop running.
I think about quitting sometimes too.
I'm tired. I want it to be over.
I keep going. I believe. And yes it helps when others believe in me too.
In the end, I get there
because I continue to take the steps forward.
Like I said, sometimes I'm not running, but walking.
Hey, I've even crawled.
And on one occasion I dragged myself for miles. It happens.
On March 20 was the first day of Spring (originally the New Year) and it got me thinking. Life is about making connections, whether its to get a job, meet someone, make friends, or get a good table at the finest restaurant.
Sometimes its about loving those who have died with the unseen, unbreakable, everlasting connections. Other times, well... every single moment of every single day our brains connect, connect, connect.
So here we are. This was the inspiration of the month. Realizing how our magical our bodies are to constantly make connections, make changes, and reconnect without us having to think about it. We connect with our bodies through the thoughts we have, so if I'm stressed I automatically develop pain in my neck and shoulders. (If I try to pretend I'm not stressed, well then I've got my body responding crystal clear!)
Have you ever had that feeling when you meet someone and it feels like you've known them your whole life? That's a deep connection. It's not romantic, its magic!
Or those magical moments with your kids when you remember how you were at that age and you just get them. And they just get you right back. And its all so perfectly clear.
Perhaps, its enjoying your life as you move forward with time without resisting. You own it. You embrace it. You channel it. You love it!

Got the world figured out?
I did, until it came crashing down. I had no choice but to start over and rebuild.
