Life is full of twist and turns…sometimes we don’t know where it is going to take us. Sometimes it takes us on a road to our past, sometimes we do a 360 turn around, sometimes we are just coasting along, sometimes we have to make a lot of U-turns, sometime we go down a very winding road, sometimes it’s up mountains that take our breath away.
The truth is we never know where life is going to take us and sometimes there are a lot of roadblocks, sometimes those road blocks are for our own good. At times, I feel like someone gave me really bad directions on how to get where I was going. I got off track and really gots lost, thank “God”, he is my co-pilot.
Let’s think about life just a little bit…
Love, we have highs, butterflies, but then it can be just like Bon Jovi’s song, You give love a bad name.
“Shot through the heart
And you’re to blame
You give love a bad name (bad name)
How about the loss of a love one, how does this make us feel? We are so lost without them, again we feel “Shot through the heart”. Death of a love one, is one of the most painful things that we will ever experience. The amount of pain that we feel equals just how much we love them.
Then, there is the joy of new beginnings…A new baby, what joy this brings to everyone. That sweet, sweet smell of a baby, Johnson & Johnson knew the right sent when they created their product! Babies are so sweet and innocent with their whole life ahead of them. How can you just not, love them!
Going to kindergarten for the first time, how scary! Going to middle school, how scary! Going to high school, how scary! Graduating high school, how exciting but scary! Going to college or getting a new job, how exciting and scary!
A new marriage, the “I DO” that we pray will never become “I DON’T”. Couples full of love, hope and ready to build a life.
Divorce, one of the nastiest words in the english dictionary, oh, how much pain it causes, but anyone that goes through a divorce is a survivor.
Survivor, how about all the people who have battled an illness and have beat that disease…how about a huge round of applause for not allowing it to defeat you! This is your stage, please take a bow!
So, yes life is full of twist and turns, some are scary, some are fun, some are exciting, some are full of hope, some are just painful and sometimes we are just lost without direction. But, we all survive this life and all of the twist, turns and punches it gives us. All in all, we should stand proud, stand tall of who we are and what we have overcome. It’s your life, own it with all the good, bad and ugly because it has made you the person you are today! Go live it and live it proud!
You’re not alone, you are loved,
The Girl that was Abandon
