Time Ticks On...

I'm in a strange place as the new year approaches. This year has been filled with disappointments and accomplishments, deception and revelation, gains and losses, but then again what year isn't? I've seen a lot of people bemoaning 2013 and wishing for 2014 to get here as if that will magically reset the clock and make all the bad stuff disappear... Wouldn't that be nice?

But would it really? I'm not so sure. I've come to realize the bad stuff is just as important to a full life as the good stuff. Without the struggles, how would we grow? Without the disappointments, how would we discover what we don't want? Without the losses, how would appreciate the gains?
I love my life. I am happy not because my life is perfect, but because I know this is my journey and I get to travel it until the moment I don't. And, frankly, at least for now, I'd rather be travelling it than not. Even when my heart breaks, I know it's temporary. I may never love without …

Moments of Merriment (a poem)

I wish for you
Moments of merriment every day
A soft place to land when life feels hard
The happiness of love
The love of family
The understanding of friendship
The compassion of strangers
The unity of cultivating peace
May every day
Hold within it the potential
To share 
Moments of merriment
With all those we love

May today's merriment become a staple in your life...
Happy Holidays!
