Be...(warning thinking)

This is an actual image from Hubble.

Isn't it beautiful...I just love this image. I had to share it. I am one of those people who sits and thinks about the hows and whys of the world. I am one who can definitely get lost in my thoughts. When I saw this image, I did just that. It made me think about spreading my wings and giving into the desire to be more then what I am. I can feel changes happening within myself. I can also feel the me that is still locked away inside but about to break free. For the most part I am who I am and I truly feel very blessed to be where I am, with the family I have, and the friends I have. I have come along way...but you see there is still a part of me...a very lost, lonely, scared, insecure little girl. But she is rapidly being replaced by a found, secure, brave, loving, woman. I think it has a lot to do with my age, the things I have been through, loss, the people that I have crossed paths with. Some of those people becoming life-long friends who write on my soul, others just staying for awhile but leave an imprint on my soul. I am so excited to see what the future brings. I know there will be challenges, and I know there will be blessings. The thing I know for sure is that whatever it may be, I will face it head on. Make the most of it. Be happy. Be Kind. Be the kind of person that can rise above the mistakes and hopefully help someone else with the knowledge I gain. Be brave. But most importantly be who I was meant to be.

I hope that each and every one of you have a happy week and that the good things outweigh the challenging ones.

  1. Can I say "wow"!? You truly are an amazing woman. Never be scared to just BE. I guess I would need to give that advice to myself, but alas, I'm too stupid to do that! LOL! Truly inspirational today!
