    We Just Never Know

    When we meet someone what part they will play in our journey of life.  Sometimes they leave before we wish they would and other times we wish they'd leave before they do.  Last week I met someone who said they wanted to be my friend.  Before the afternoon was...

    The Path

    The path of life leads us on a journey of constant changes and challenges. We live each season of our lives,  stronger, wiser, more compassionate, or weak and fearful of where the next day may lead. It is a world of wonder, of beauty and solice, of pain and grief. In the end...

    We're All Here For a Reason

    Although I'm not ever clear on what the exact reason is for my being here.  I do know some of the lessons I have to learn.  No one ever told me it would be this hard.  The hardest part of people coming and going was that my parents couldn't raise me and...

    Of those people who have come

    and gone in your life, you got to wonder if you had any impact on their lives. Did I make any difference in their lives? Do you think they even remember you?

    When you realize not everyone's meant to share

    your journey with you, the easier it is to let go and move on . ( Friends , boyfriends, etc.) Some people are blessings others are lessons.

    I'm Learning This

    In life, a lot of people want to "cling".We cling to our comforts in life- we have our favorite foods, our favorite pastimes, our favorite brands. We eat at the same restaurants, we buy the same style of clothing, we have a preferred make or model of car, etc. I've noticed that...

    Sad But True

    Some I miss more than ever and wish they didn't have to go. Others, not so much, and when they do come back, I pretend like I'm not home. But the journey is real and unavoidable.

    to someone you maybe the world. There's always somebody we can`t forget easily, even after sevral years or maybe our entire lives. But life just goes on and we have to move on and begin everything as usual."

    Except for me, it seems like more people are

    going. And at 25, time for new (interesting) people coming into my life is limited, or at least that's how it appears to me.

    I've been thinking a lot about the nature of

    life, and what it actually IS. Everything is impermanent; happiness comes, and it goes. Sadness comes, and it goes. Pain comes, and it goes. People come, and they go. Pets come, and they go. Hatred comes, and it goes. Love comes, and it goes. Etc. etc. etc. I remember...

    Story Time!

    I've given up on you, and now that I have, I don't know if it makes me feel better or not. In a sense, I feel, somewhat, more "free".  But then again, I'm going to miss you.  You were a good person to talk (and vent about people) to.  The guy I really...

    Life Is a Class

    Each event that happens occurred to teach us something. The people in one's life is also there to teach us something. Sometimes it's easy to figure out the lesson, while other times it takes years for one to see the benefits of the lesson.

    People come and go in your life,

    for a reason at some point. Whether they stay, whether they do not. Whether it is temporary or not, life is journey with them, and you learn from them, whether it is a good thing or a bad thing from them.

    I met a lot of people in my 34 years of living. When I was younger, I feel so bad when some of my friends leave. But that is a fact of life. We come and go! Nobody stays. To look at the brighter side of it , I treasured the moments that I had with them. Yes, it is sad when they...

    Like the Bard,

    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.

    I have grasped this concept all too well.

    I can't even remember how many of my "friends" have left me. It's a terrible thing to experience because naturally I believe that it is something that I said or did. Not many of my friends actually get me and understand why I am the way I am. So, when I share too much they drift...
