the point

Well, seems life as I know it is about to change a bit

Once upon a time this would have scared me silly

Thing about growth is

change becomes an embraceable thing, instead of an unbearable concept

You come to realise that unless you allow something to be different, nothing will ever be different

Unless you risk looking like a fool, you will never now how gracefully you danced

Unless you throw yourself into love, you never will be loved in the way you dreamed of

Unless you say what it is you feel, another will not know

Unless you feel the pain, you cannot cry the tears

That kind of stuff

Sometimes its worth stepping off the edge just to feel the wind in your face

Me, my life is about to change irrevocably

There is sadness coming

and pain

and also great joy

Isn't that the whole point?

To experience the experience just as it happens?

To be the best you know how to be and sleep soundly at night knowing

Knowing that you did okay today

and you have nothing to lie about tomorrow

I like life these days people

I really do

It's nice to actually be living it

instead of merely surviving....

I love stopping by here. I feel like you're writing just for me, although I know it's for you. It does give me a sense of calm.

Feeling is living and you are living. Embrace it all.

Michelle this was the loveliest and most meaningful and most real post I have read in a very long time.

I especially love this 'You come to realise that unless you allow something to be different, nothing will ever be different.'

I can't believe the business sold. Now my dear friend, maybe you can get some well deserved rest.

Love Renee xoxoxo
