The time I’ve spent…

10494874_10153000588244638_4172461991523438037_nI’m sitting in the mountains of Colorado evaluating my life and everything that encompasses me.  The scenic view and fresh air has clarified some things for me. It has given me a refreshed perspective on what I truly want to be remembered for when my time is completed upon God’s beautiful earth.  I have always been a scenic girl, an outdoors lover… I seem to think better when there are no humans to distract my thinking.

Although I promise to constantly blog…that too has become more of a nuisance than a purpose.  I love to write for me, so therefore I must be considered selfish with my craft. I really don’t care…I guess I am simply in that place of not caring anymore. No I’m not depressed…just enlightened. Over the course of the past two years, I have garnered a truth about relationships, rather family or friends. I’ve learned something that my Mother always shared with me….”Folks are not always genuine.”

I have become extremely happy with being alone…writing just for me. It keeps me from facing the disappointments that others bring my way. It also keeps me from trying to figure out why people behave and say the things they do.  So therefore, I shake my head and keep it moving. I’m not upset when I am not privy to the shenanigans of folks…I actually count it a privilege. I’ve found the only person whom I must give an account to….loves me regardless.  I thank God he calls me friend, no strings attached, no disappointments…no hidden agendas…

So here I sit, time well spent…thanking God for clarity…

So you ask, ‘What is the purpose of these ramblings?” It’s a simple  answer

Do you..in the best way possible..

Making things fit…

So as January comes to 63751_300687083367649_308403075_na close, I am thinking about the remainder of the year and what it holds for me. January has been a little rough, I have lost more than I have found within these first 31 days of the year.  Although I have gained a new sense of independence and a new attitude on life, I have lost some “love.” Friends and family that were dear to me have transisitioned…..and even some people who I was vaguely familiar with, have departed this life.  It puts the years into perspective for me. The time I have spent doing what I love compared to what I felt compelled to do. After weighing the pros and cons, I have realized the vast majority of my life was spent enjoying a laugh or two, taking chances and living life to the fullest.  My desire is that I continue to breathe joy into every moment that awaits me in 2013. I want to leave a legacy of “feel good” to people who knew me. I pray that each time they think of me, they think of something that I did or said that made their life just a little more enjoyable

This past weekend, I was privileged to help women write the vision and make it plain. We came together and did a “vision board.” It was a fun, inspirational time of putting our goals into a  collage of pictures and quotes that would remind us daily of what we want to accomplish for the year. The laughter amidst like-minded sisters was awesome! The spirit of accomplishment was evident as each picture, quote and tiny star was glued and pressed into place…sort of like our lives. Yet their determination to move pictures around and rearrange things to fit, was something that we do not do.  We don’t spend a lot of time making things of importance fit.  You see too often, we don’t rearrange our time or schedule to accommodate what we really want to accomplish! We go through life doing what we feel forced or compelled to complete, the unimportant stuff that becomes our priority.  We  let life make us and yet we neglect to make a life.  Settled into complacency and going through a set mundane rut… i.e daily jobs, taking care of family and the rest.  Wouldnt it be awesome, if we looked at each day like a vision board, making sure that each activity or event we really want to accomplish is inserted….somewhere?

As January takes its final lap, I challenge you to do something you have never done before this year! Rearrange some things! Make the important things fit, the moments that will make  life special. Dream more, dance harder and laugh a lot!

Each sunset is one day closer to our eternal destiny….and I want to arrive at mine sliding down a sliding board, with a drink in hand shouting “WOOOOOHOOOO!! IM HOME!”

Peace, Love & Empowerment!
