Yes, it’s been awhile. Life is a journey in the strongest sense. When one sits and ponders of days gone by, we really only have our memories embedded within our minds.
Unfortunately, we cannot retain every single experience within our lifetime. There’s just way to many to recollect. The ones we do retain often at the time, elevate our emotions to enormous highs and lows that include many laughs, smiles and love, as well as tears, sadness and loneliness.
My favourite way of pondering back on my journey of life, is taking the time to sit and view the many photos of my day to day life. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
People sometimes ask, would you ever change the past as you know it? With some deep thought and rememberance of days gone by, I would truly have to say “no”.
Why you ask? Well, of all my past experiences, in my life, they have made me into the beautiful, strong, wise, confident woman that I am today.
I continue to live life to the fullest as best I can. Looking after my body, mind and spirit first, so that I can be fully there and present for others. Some days, are better than others. Yet I continue on.
I decided its time to put pen to paper, or in this instance, typing to text. And begin to share whats on my heart, in my soul and some day to day experiences that I think others might like.
I’m starting right here, where I left off.
I’ve looked back over my blog writing and the photos I shared and the stories I wrote. It brings smiles to my face, tears to my eyes and laughter in my voice.
I was writing in my daily journal the other day, on April 1st. Writing how the days are going by so quickly. Time is running out.
I’ve got things to do. Places to go. People to meet. Family to connect with. Then I wrote: What is time? A second? A minute? An hour? A day? A month? A year?
I had just completed those words, when a quote popped up on my meditation app. It read just this:
“The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.”
Such a powerful statement.
So use your time wisely. We all have the same 24 hours in a day. And not one second more or one second less.
