The gift of being human is a journey, and the written word is my compass. Navigating the heart takes courage, humility, and faith, and sometimes has a bittersweet ending. Learning to truly enjoy the sweetness and accept the bitter is a process, enabled by the gift of consciousness that will ultimately bring us home to Spirit. I share my journey, for it means nothing to me without writing it down so I can begin to fully appreciate it. I am often a fool, and never perfect, so I tell on myself because my mistakes often become my greatest triumphs. I often end my posts with a simple phrase… Stay Blessed.
My life has taught me that no matter how little I thought I had at any given moment, I always had exactly what I needed, even if I didn’t recognize it at the moment. Knowing this, I have been blessed more than I realize, and I ask you to recognize in your own life, and to be grateful for each little miracle that is brought your way… Gratitude is the road that brings us back to our quintessential Spirit.
