Moving forward

Faithful readers,
Thank you for your incredible patience these past several months while I neglected my writing here. It’s not that I wasn’t writing at all. Rather, my writing took on a different direction and purpose – One I did not deem suitable for the blog.

Life is unpredictable and our plans sometimes get derailed without warning. Moving forward, there have been so many bright spots – That is where I will resume our shared experiences here. 

When I began this blog, little did I know that many of the topics I explored and shared with you here were actually previews of the strengths that would see me through the coming year. I often preach that the universe gives us what we need – All it takes is faith and an open heart and mind. Do what is right, not what is easy. Be true to yourself. Empty your bucket but know when and where to refill. Be a fountain, not a drain. Love is all there is.

All of these lessons, and more, have come full circle for me. I’ve had to live by my own words – a sometimes daunting and often humbling experience. Without them, I might have floundered helplessly. Instead, I am living my life intentionally.
I was temporarily knocked out of the driver’s seat. But I’m back at the wheel and going places. Without the give and take of mutual understandings here, I’m not sure that I would have navigated the storm so well. Your support means more to me than you’ll ever know.

Now that the dust is settling around me, I am writing again. It feels great! I’m not exactly certain what direction the blog might take, as my experiences will surely have an impact. By my goal is to return to writing something on a weekly basis.

One thing I have learned is that you don’t necessarily need to see the top of the ladder to take the first steps. I was climbing blind these past months but felt the hands of my angels at my back. Things have fallen into place with remarkable synchronicity. The gifts that have been delivered to me have arrived with amazing timing. There are few coincidences in this life. I am truly blessed.

Wherever life is taking you, believe that you are right where you should be. Know that you will land on your feet. If you can’t feel it in your heart, recognize it with your mind. Trust the journey. Above all, never stop learning, growing and evolving into the best you can be. Some of the best days of your life lie ahead of you, still.

  3. Life can be so difficult and for so many reasons. You used all of your strength to conquer what you needed and landed on your feet with a smile on your face! You have proven this to so many but more importantly to yourself. We are all on that ladder and climbing at our own speed to be where we imagine we want to be . It takes a special heart and caring soul to inspire so many friends. I am so Blessed to be one of them. WELCOME BACK! xoxox

    1. One of my favorite quotes is: “Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could.
      Some blunders and absurdities no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
      Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with
      your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations,
      to dwell a moment on yesterdays.” Welcome back, Babs!
