Monday is back again…………! Time to start another week with a dose of light – some focus maybe………letting us see that there is a whole NEW week ahead and it’s our choice to spend it in the light or not. SPARKS is hosted by my good friend Annie at McGuffy’s Reader……….her idea was that within each of us is the ability to be engaged in our OWN life – we aren’t just blobs waiting to be pushed and pulled along – we have our own power within. Sharing a quote or a photo or an idea every week helps! She’s right……….this blog hop is a great way to start our week. Thanks Annie for hosting this Hop. If you want to join in just click on the graphic above and join in spreading some light with us all.
My quote this Monday is a little different from most of the ones I’ve posted on previous Mondays. But it still is totally ME and it still may “register” with you!
I guess all of us – if we’re honest – can say that our lives weren’t exactly what we thought they would be back when we used to read fairy tale stories that always had happy endings. But you have to admit that if you’re looking back and recognize all those bumps in the road of your life, the bumps just MIGHT have made you stronger as a person. You may not have figured you’d be HERE when you had dreams of your future but know what? THIS IS WHERE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE. It is your life path. So what we have to do is make it OURS. Own it. All the good, bad and ugly of it. We are stronger because of it. Sometimes it doesn’t feel that way but that’s because we’re choosing to see the negative side of it.
Anyway, that’s what I think………….and I really do believe that I am now, where I was MEANT to be…………….
Thanks again Annie for a chance to stand up on my “life soapbox” for a little bit on a Monday……….now I’m going to make today and the rest of this week MINE !! Happy Monday everybody.
