Letting Go

drowning in sorrow
living in the past
wallowing in the heartache
reliving the mistakes
repeating the failures
weighed down by judgements
limited by shortcomings
covering the pain
mourning lost love

time to let go
or life will not change

The past will define us.  It will limit our existence to mediocrity.  Or it will be the foundation of our character and resilience.  Hang on to the past and go no where.  Or let go and soar beyond all obstacles.  The choice is yours.

who would i be
what would i believe
would i understand patience
would i know strength
would i comprehend compassion
would i recognize kindness
would i appreciate victory
would i perceive reality
would i realize my potential
could i fathom love
would i be me

if not for adversity

Adversity is something we work hard to avoid.  Funny thing is, sometimes by trying to avoid it, we walk right into it.  Perhaps we should be thankful for adversity.  After all, it gives you character, encourages growth and expands our hearts and minds.  I am not saying we should seek it out.  There is no need.  It will find us.  However, let's give credit where credit is due.  Adversity lets us know of what we are made.  And when we accept the fact that adversity enhances our lives, we tend to move through it more quickly.  Adversity...wallow in it or embrace it.

a life
filled with magic

a life
overflowing with wonder

a life
erupting with possibilities

a life
packed with purpose

a life
bursting with love

a life
bubbling with joy

a life
wrapped in contentment

a life
touched by the stars

a life
kissed by the moon

a life
you can live

you need only...


Far too often, we allow the trials of our life to cloud our imagination, cripple our dreams and crush our ability to believe.  Time to find a child's ability to imagine.  Time to rediscover a child's strength to believe.  Time to grasp firmly our dreams.  Time to live the life that burns within our hearts. 

Anything is possible.  Imagine...Believe...
