A dream within a reach

Updated on June 1, 2012

About 2 years ago this time, I was layed up in bed on my 4th surgery. My body was physically and mentally at its worst. I was not the social butterfly that all my friends had come to love. I didn’t want people to see me over weight and ugly. I was embarrassed at my body and my mental well being. Since then, time has passed and I want to reflect on my life journey. What did I learn about in the past 2 years?

Seize the day! There is no moment like the present. DO things you normally would not do. See things you would normally not see. Take chances, take risks! Life has to be lived with no regrets! Loyalty matters, and sometimes a girl has to do, what a girl has to do.

Spread joy and happiness on to others around you! It is contagious and people will thank you in the end for sharing. Even though speaking the truth may hurt, in the end it cleanses your soul. When one door closes, another one opens. Walk through that door and take on what is handed to you head on!

I sometimes wonder to myself, what if I had done that differently, then again, maybe not. I am who I am today from the choices I made. There are no mistakes in life, only lessons. Everything is possible and within your reach if you only try your best, love yourself and trust your instincts. I sit in amazement to reflect all of the things I have experienced in life. Some only people can dream of. I have had my share of pot holes but they are patched up and I am ready to continue on my journey down that road. I have had no guarantee of what my life will bring. But I am sure that I am carefree and will take whatever life throws at me. Good or bad. I have come this far and I definitely do not intend to stop now! I have so much more I want to see and do! And I am well on my way to doing all of my dreams and bucket list!

I look back on the past two years and look at all the pieces picking them up and putting them all back together starting over from the beginning and looking forward to the ripple of beauty ahead that awaits me. Life is short….but not endless. J

      very inspiring. I often wonder how things could have been, and it is good to know that others feel good about the way we turn out as well
