My Journey….this far anyway

My Journey – and I capitalize Journey because it’s important to me – has been a long and winding one. Ups and downs. Good and bad. Light and dark. So many experiences, choices, decisions, and moves have brought me to where I am today.

I’m happy to say that I’m happy!

I have a wonderful life full of love, music, creations, offerings, laughter, fun and joy!

I wouldn’t want it any other way.

This is my life. This is my love. This is my happiness. This is the life I’ve been working toward my entire time on this rock.

I’ve not always had it easy. Nobody has. I’ve had bad things happen to, and around, me. I’ve been shattered and beaten down. I’ve been broke and broken.

But I’m not a victim.

I’m a Survivor!

I picked myself up every single time, put that smile back into my heart, and moved forward in love and light. I leaned on the people closest to me that lifted me up. The ones that held me down, are no longer in my life.

That’s by my design.

I have grown to have zero tolerance, or room in my soul, for negativity, drama or bullshit. Take that crap somewhere else. It’s not welcome here.

My Journey has only just begun. I’m 44 years young and I have a LOT of life left to live!

One thing that is super duper important to me is to always try to be a better person than I was yesterday. I refuse to go backwards, only move forward in my convictions and beliefs.

My life isn’t perfect, but it’s perfect for me! You have to find out what’s perfect for YOU! Maybe that’s working a 9-5 job day in and day out. Maybe it’s being a stay at home parent. Maybe it’s being your own boss. Maybe it’s being a scientist or astronaut. Or maybe it’s just being mediocre at tennis.

Only you know what your perfect is. Search it out. Look inside your heart, inside your soul. Listen to what your gut is telling you is right for YOU! You can share your perfect with others, so long as they lift you up and not hold you down.

I live my perfect every day, but it changes as I change. I grow older, wiser (I hope), stronger, leaner, smarter (again, I hope), healthier and happier every day.

This is my Journey. What’s yours?

PS – this is a quote from Maya Angelou that I have had on my refrigerator for 12 years. It’s inside my soul and something I now live by.
