So, I finally decided to make this my permanent home. It seems that I only do this for myself, it’s therapeutic. Although, there is really not much to complain about nevertheless there is always plenty to write about. I’ve shifted about quite a few times but, I always shift back to here.
Again I say, hello world
I have always been one to ponder, to really over-analyze everything. Of course, I always question life and it’s purpose. As silly as that sounds.
Yet at times I tend to jump into things with my heart way too often to be any good. But, as of late… my heart has had pretty decent judgment than it has in the past.
We often learn so much from strife and suffering. That is why I am thankful for every single second of happiness that I am blessed with.
These last few years have been nothing but amazing.
I have a career, a job and a sense of fulfillment doing it.
A beautiful and intelligent daughter who has started school and is not only adjusting but excelling academically and socially.
It’s only JK but, I am incredibly proud. I have a hard-working, ambitious husband who is a good father and the best friend I could have ever asked for. And, I have been blessed to spend time with my loved ones. I have much to be grateful for.
I know nothing in life is free. Everything has a price. Every thought a choice. Every action a consequence. That is what leads me to the topic of forgiveness.
What is the price of that and is it ours to claim?
Should it be?
I am not perfect and I never claim to be. I know my wrongs, I know my mistakes and I have paid more for some than others. You are a fool if you claim to have never wronged another. I have come across many sad people like these. Who travel life claiming to have lived it perfectly. Not knowing those thoughts, mere suggestions provoke actions.
Which then holds them responsible, which then, in turn, makes them wrong.
My belief is that we are given the choice to forgive another. But, it is simply turning the other cheek, it is up to a higher power to truly forgive wrongdoers.
What does forgiveness mean if it is not asked for?
Some people are not worthy of forgiveness. Again, this is not my decision. I only turn the blind eye, I “forgive” in a sense, simply by moving on.
But, I do not forget.
Does this mean I hold grudges? Maybe? No, it means that I make it a point to NEVER let the same mistake happen twice.
Life is Beautiful
Life is a constant journey with a vast valley of acclivities, mesas and canyons. Success is only measured by which routes we take to reach the other side.
I am proud to have conquered treacherous encumbrances only to take peace and solace in the personal paradise I live in now. I know deep down that mistakes will always somehow come back to me.
But, I do know that nothing is impossible to defeat.
Life is great in paradise and it is only up from here. For those living within deep canyons, seeking, but never finding a way out.
I pity you.
I’ll send a postcard.
