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 most involved in the human experience, has been riddled with hardships. Unfortunately, those hardships have always upstaged the many simultaneous blessings I’ve known. I was always running so fast that I never really took time to appreciate the good things in my life… I mean, deeply appreciate them. Recognition and passing nods don’t count much for appreciation! As an addict and alcoholic in recovery I am finding that ceasing my fast pace escape methods and embracing a slower speed is changing everything for the better. That's ALL God if ya know me!
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've always tried to do everything on my own (and what a royal mess). I'm listening to counsel now and learning surrender.
I hope people who visit here, by sharing in my experiences, past and present, may avoid time wasted with errors in focus and reliance on dark-lensed glasses. Part of life is figuring things out as we go and often in a state of solitude in the company of our own minds. We all have to go through hard times and grow and change accordingly. The fact that we are able to go “through” and reach the other side is a gift. 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 own unique quests, combined with the added benefit of finding common threads within- how amazing! Hope you enjoy peeking inside my journey from time to time!
