TRUST

 

 

My thoughts are hazy.

Sleep last night was interrupted.

 

A premonition of sorts?

Maybe just a reminder of what needs to be done.

 

They say it's all about the timing of things.

Is there ever a right time or perfect timing?

 

More often than not, one just has to trust.

Trust in the not knowing.

 

Trust in the uncertainty.

Best of all, trust in him up there.

 

Somewhere in the sky behind the haze,

Someone is watching over me.

 

This I trust 100%.

The Melody of Mid-Life

Don’t be afraid.  Take that leap of faith.

Only when you let go will you realize what you’re truly capable of accomplishing.

 

Find strength in uncertainty.  Persevere.

Truth and realizations emerge amidst not knowing what the outcome will be.

 

Pick your battles. Not everything is worth fighting for.

Eventually, things get straightened out.  Whether you meet again, does not matter.

 

Be willing to learn something new.

Growth never stops.  Embrace with openness what life has to offer.

 

Don’t just count your earnings.

Count your blessings!  They are worth more than money can buy.

Live and Learn

They say the learning never stops.

Once again fate has hurled me to the other side of the fence.

I have to admit I never saw it coming.

 

That was one hell of a blind curve.

All the years of hard work and effort to stay centered fell right through the cracks.

I had nothing and no one to hold on to but myself.

 

One day it all came to an abrupt halt.

I had to do something to save my soul.

There’s only so much coldness one can endure.

 

The silence deafened me to no end.

I couldn’t cry a river even if I wanted to let it all out.

Then without warning, one of the hardest decisions I had to make in a long time just happened.

 

And then it all came rolling down like an endless stream.

Tears of pain, tears of sorrow and disappointment.

I had to swallow it all no matter how hard it was to digest.

 

So they say keep moving forward…

Who knows what tomorrow may bring.

Everyday is a work in progress for me.

 

Maybe one day fate will be kind to me once again.

And I will have the strength to give it another shot.

If only to master the learning that never stops.

Unraveling Yarn

Patiently I sit and untangle the knots.

I compare the process to life.

It takes time to straighten out the kinks.

 

Loose yarn when bought can be spun into a ball for easy knitting.

Great if life could be spun around to straighten things out.

I forget to have my yarn spun whenever I buy a new skein.

 

I get excited to knit forgetting that tangles can happen along the way.

Just like life, I keep going no matter what.

Sometimes I get caught up in a kink and have to figure a tidy way out.

 

So I sit and let time pass while I figure out my tangled yarn.

Just a few more strands of knots to unravel and I can knit again.

And so another day goes by, maybe then it was not what I had hoped for.

 

But not to worry, just like unraveling yarn, I will rise with ease from life’s knots.
