Moments and Change

Well, I have been thinking a lot lately (oh no!).  Sometimes we all get in those reflective moods.  We think about the 'what ifs'.  We think about what could be.  We think about where we are headed.

We all know a moment in time can change the world we know.  YES, just one moment.  In that moment everything changes, and NOTHING will ever be the same.
I am starting to finally realize how true that saying  is - that the only constant thing in our lives is CHANGE.  It happens - like it or not.
What do we do?  Do we sit and fill ourselves with regret?  Do we give up?  Do we trudge forward?  Do we realize we have a purpose?  Do we keep on trying?

Well, I hope you don't give up!  Naturally we will do all the others.  You may have lost your love, you may have lost your income, you may have lost your health - and so on.  Often that means you have lost your direction.

I think I am learning and growing, and I want to offer some words of hope.  As bad as it gets at times - it is all part of what we are supposed to experience.  It is all part of what makes us who we are.
I have been through a lot - but I wouldn't trade my experiences.  YES - absolutely, I wish I still had my loved ones - but I am so glad I HAD them in my life - they all helped form me.  
I am who I am today because of EVERY experience I have had in my life.

If you do something to help another or yourself - it may just take a brief moment - but life is made of moments.  Everything can change (good or bad) in a moment.  Those tiny moments when you reach out or smile or touch another life - can forever change someone.  
Never give up and never give in.
You are worth fighting for.  If you are sad and depressed about loss - just remember those before you, and those who are here with you today - go forward for them and FOR YOU!  
It takes tremendous COURAGE to take ACTION.

We all know that this life will not last forever (on earth).  Make your life count through the journey you take.  
You can help choose the journey - so make it a good one.  Make this life count and leave a legacy for others to follow.

MOMENTS MAKE A LIFE - so make it as good as possible.
Blessings my friends.

  1. Sometimes the ripple effects from people we had in our lives, who are now gone, continues on in other people still in our lives today. And that is what makes life sweet. :)

    1. Yes it does. And we can continue those ripples as well.

  2. I can be very reflective, and then I get ungrateful, like why could things have no been easier. Then I become morose becasue I am so blessed but acting ungrateful. It is a vicious circle with me.

    1. If it were all easy - I doubt we would learn much.
      We are truly blessed indeed.

  3. I find the difficulties I have had in my life have enabled me to help others in similar circumstances whereas I wouldn't have had a clue otherwise. It also makes me grateful for all the small good things in life. I would have preferred not to have had those difficulties but it is true that it made me the person I am.

    1. Thank you for sharing. I agree - you wish some things didn't have to happen - but they do. Hopefully we can all learn from them and help others.

  4. Cheryl, you are a new blessing in my life! I so enjoy reading your posts and the comments by your astute followers. I agree with Miss Jean: our past difficulties enable us be compassionate and empathetic to others. There are some experiences in my life I would have rather skipped but collectively they all make me who I am today. As my youngest daughter says, things happen for a reason.

    1. I do believe there is always a reason. Something good comes from something bad - I have to believe that. Maybe it just makes us a better person - that is good.

      Thank you so much! I love this bunch!!!!

  5. I sometimes get in a cycle, too, but all the time I know I have loads to be grateful for. So many things it would be impossible to name them all.
