Lessons Learned

I have skeletons in my closet ... or what I'd rather refer to as gems.

Once upon a time, when I was knee deep in a situation or facing difficult decisions I found it hard to understand those words of wisdom 'time will heal all wounds' or 'it gets worse before it gets better.' Now, I get it.  I've learned countless lessons in my life. Armed with experience and knowledge, I have a different approach.

Rather than fight it, I embrace it.
Rather than question it, I trust it.
Rather than delve in self pity, I welcome the opportunity to get stronger.

Where does it all come from? Perspective...and at the core is gratitude.

I'm so thankful everyday for so many things, and I am grateful that I can express them...everyday.

For the 'information highway'...which enables me to connect with people globally. Thank you :)

For doing what I love ... writing, creating, sharing.. making a difference.  Thank you :)

For brunch with my family ... laughing, being together, loving each other.  Thank you :)

For my little god daughter ... at a tender age of 5, she has the secret of life .. laughter and loving every second. Thank you :)

For air conditioning ... Thank you :)

For banana popsicles ... delicious, refreshing.  Thank you :)

For being able to walk ... anytime, anywhere ... everywhere! Thank you :)

For getting the courage to face my fear of heights ... and water.  Baby steps.  Thank you :)

For lessons learned ... Thank you :)
