A journey can be described as the interim experience between two places. I consider the journey I’ve been on thus far in my life, and I find myself with a surprising level of peace with what has been, and hope for what is yet to be. I’m perplexed to see these words spilling onto this page, and to know they actually come from a place of genuineness inside of me. My journey, as many involved in the human experience, has been riddled with hardships. Unfortunately, those hardships have often upstaged the many simultaneous blessings I’ve known. I was always running so fast that I never really took time to appreciate the positive things in my life… I mean, deeply appreciate them.
A huge part of my journey includes spiritual growth and discovery. God and I are much more than acquaintances now, and what an amazing difference. I used to try to do everything on my own without him (and what a royal mess). I'm listening to counsel now and learning surrender.
Part of life is figuring things out as I go. We all have to go through hard times and grow and change accordingly. Any time we are able to go “through” and reach the other side of difficulty is a gift- both experientially to share with others, and freedom from the hurt. There is much to grasp in this life. The concept of an open forum where people all over the planet can share their thoughts, ideas, and beliefs excites me. The collective-experiences of individuals navigating their unique quests, combined with the added benefit of finding common threads within... how amazing!
Blessings and Beauty,
