I have spent the better part of my almost 51 years of life trying to master my life. I have tried to figure out why I failed and why I have succeeded, why I feel what I do and how to cultivate more of what I want. Truly it is the pain and disappointments of my life that have taught me the most.
I have faced my own mortality twice in my life. I have confronted face to face the deepest and darkest sides of myself. What have I learned? I have learned that my situations don’t define me. What I have doesn’t define me. Who I think I am and who everyone else thinks I am doesn’t define me and doesn’t even really matter.
What does seem to matter is the emotional content of my days, my minutes, my seconds and my moments. How I feel each moment of my life defines me in that moment. I am ever-changing and always moving. And today I accept all of this certainty and uncertainty in my life experience.
Time has a funny reflective effect on me as I pass through it. Time never stops, never tarries for long but always moves me forward, and always asks me to think. My life is just like “The Little Engine That Could.” “I think I can, I think I can…. I know I can, I know I can!” Yes! This life won’t stop for me, so I am holding on for this ride that I get to have. Thank you to my life. Thank you to me. I am wonderful.
I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
