Learning About Change
“Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.”
Today I am reminded that my life has been an incredible journey of ups and downs. I am so grateful for where and who I am today, sometimes I can’t find the words to explain the gratitude I feel for the life I am living. I learned so much from my Mom’s life and it inspired me to live my life without fear and filled with peace and joy.
This quote and the changes in my life, I hope someday help my children learn that your ultimate goal in life should be to find happiness and peace within. Once you find peace in your soul, you find peace and happiness everywhere you are. Life won’t be perfect, and you will experience things that bring you to your knees and shake your very core. Know that even though we don’t see the reason why, the universe is always bringing us along the path that is meant to be. During the difficult times this will sometimes be impossible to see, but remember that all is well, and life is still a beautiful journey. You will not know dark without light, you will not know love without loss, and you will not know happiness without great sadness. Push yourself through every challenging and impossible time, you will find a more beautiful and better you at the end. People will not always understand, and you will always have people who criticize, but remember those people fade, and you are the one who has to live your life, only you and no one else. Follow the path that deep in your soul feels right, follow your heart and learn from the pains in life.
Believe in love, believe in others, believe in the good of the world, and most of all believe in YOU.
