A Million Little Things

“Tears are words that need to be written” – Paulo Coelho

You’ve heard me say this before, “It’s not just one thing, it’s a million little things”

Like a vase, I was broken with shattered pieces everywhere 

Sharp glass edges not only cut me but others

Since then, I’ve tried  to pick up those pieces and create something beautiful

You found, cared, and loved me in every way

Ups and downs are part of the journey in life

However, taking risks with something you know is fragile, is not only insensitive, but it’s also dangerous

Remember, mountains do not form without earthquakes

I gaze at the stars suspended in the night sky

And think of the millions of great opportunities shining right before my eyes

I make a wish and hope you see them too

I remember it’s not the big things in life that count

It’s a million little things…

Much Love,

Have You Ever Seen The Rain

hqdefault

Isn’t it ironic how we feel is sometimes the opposite of what we are truly living in?

Have you ever felt sad while wearing a smile?

Did you ever feel alone in a room full of people?

Have you ever felt angry when everyone is happy?

Have you ever seen the rain?  In other words, have you ever been sad?  Of course, we are all human, so you are not alone.

But have you ever seen the rain, coming down on a sunny day?  In other words, have you ever had something tough or unfortunate happen during the good times?  I know I have.

Is it possible to be sad and happy at the same time?

Yes, it is…

Grief is a perfect example of being happy one minute then bursting into tears the next.  Our stories are different, but our emotions are the same.  We are more similar than we are different but eventually, we get through it all.

Have you ever felt the calm before the storm?

I have, and I’m pretty sure you have too…

You know that gut feeling where something bad is going to happen, you just don’t know what or when.

One thing for sure is that life is full of ups and downs and during the tough times, yes we are going to see the rain coming down.  However, it is possible to be happy during these hardships.  We have to remember that tough times don’t last forever and things will work out the way they should.  The sun always comes out in the end and if you’re lucky, you’ll even see a rainbow.  Isn’t a rainbow a sign of good luck?  You see, things are getting better already!

That’s why it’s important to have your friends and family close by, to help, guide, and support you because they love you and want what’s truly best for you.

I think this song Have You Ever Seen The Rain, by CCR is an example of how life can be so ironic sometimes.  Whenever I’m feeling down, this classic song always picks me up and makes me smile.  I hope you are smiling now too 🙂 Happy December everyone, hope it’s been good to you so far!

Much Love ❤
