A while back I thought about putting an end to this blog, as it had served it’s purpose, and no longer seemed neccessary. I’ve never been more convinced of that. So, for those of you who are loyal readers and friends and wish to continue along with me, I’ll be sending you a link to the new blog. For the rest of you (and you know who you are), this chapter is finished. It’s time to turn the page.
We promise according to our hopes, and perform according to our fears. ~Francois duc de la Rochefoucauld
…something happens that makes you realize there is no way to prepare. Ever. My sister is so ill this morning she cannot dress herself. She cannot brush her own hair. She cannot make it to the bathroom without help. My heart is breaking all over again.
I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it. – Audrey Hepburn
Have you ever been stuck with an opinion, or even in a state of mind that you just couldn’t change, no matter how hard you tried? Then all of the sudden, you hear something, or see something that has the power to INSTANTLY snap you out of it. Sometimes it’s good, and you move out of something negative into a positive thought process. Often times, it’s not. One sentence from a person can change your entire perception of their character. All along you can think one thing about who they are, and in a moment they become someone else to you. Call it an “Ah ha!” moment, or an epiphany, whatever. A simple act/utterance/look can hold so much power, enough to break through the misconceptions you’ve had for so long and reveal the core of things. I’m a big “trust your gut” girl, and I can honestly say that it rarely fails me, but then I have one of these experiences, and I think to myself, “How could you be so blind?” I guess the important thing is being able to see NOW. So, here’s to clarity. May we all be blessed with it.
