    Someone came into my life.

    She was amazing and perfect, but she ended up leaving me after five months. Now that she's gone, I see no discernible difference in my life. It's like she brought a season of great happiness, a season of great sorrow, and now that she's gone she made no difference at all. It's...

    My head told me you were gone forever

    last year my wife of 25 years asked

    for a divorce. I was not surprised but still heart broken. I felt as if i would never fall in love again. Then I met someone here on EP, who I fell madly in love with. It didn't work out, but that's ok, I learned that I can love again, that I can survive the heart ache and I can...

    My niece, Sarah is one of those people.

    I was so shocked when I got a call from my sister, Gemma's husband that she had arrived. On my birthday, none the less. And I was even more surprised that Gemma and David named her Sarina, after me. It was the best birthday gift I have ever gotten.She was always so sweet, but...

    People are merely a bunch of atoms

    and cells that replicate a pattern over and over again to form this body called you. But you are not the same you tomorrow as you are now. In 7 years every single part of you is replaced by new atoms and cells. Yet we still hold this recognisable pattern, our face, our name, our...

    Isn't That The Beauty Of Life?

    When you least expect it people come into your life. Some stay, some go, but you can't deny that if you watch and listen closely, many will have a profound impact on your life. The best are the ones who stay for the long haul and begin to understand the darkest crevices of your...

    I believe this. I believe

    Each One Leaves Something Different

    There are those who touch your being so gently, that on the sand of your life, the only footprints to be seen are your own. Others trample and stomp so hard, they leave crushed deep footprints, and sand strewn everywhere, and all you can do is wait helplessly...

    Consider

    Some people have had tragedy in their lives. Truly hard events that shake their world. But for many the things that hurt us, the things that cause us distress are the smaller things. The things that in the grand scheme of things are small...and perhaps petty. But it's funny how...

    Maybe not in a cosmic way,

    People come into your life to show you your

    worth. How to value yourself. Your friends show you love and how being there for each other means so much. Your enemies show you how strong you can be, how wrong you can be in order to stenghten yourself, build yourself up. Strangers show you how safe you think you are.
