I may not post as much as I should, or would like to, but when I do, I want it to mean something. I want you, the reader, to be impacted. I want you to stop in your tracks, stop what you’re doing and just breathe. And maybe say a wow or two.
I heard this song today; Praying by Kesha. Go to the video here on youtube and just listen to the words. They made an impact on me. So much so, I created the above picture. Please feel free to share, with everyone.
To the man that hurt me, and his (homewrecking?) girlfriend, I am already coming out on top. “People that try to bring you down are below you for a reason.”
What I want you to know is that no matter how much this may seem that I am bitter, hurt, scarred ( well maybe a little): I AM NOT. Refer back to my Lioness post. I thank Him everyday for all that I have. And what I have today and everyday is peace. And yes, in case you’re wondering, I pray for the both of them everyday. I pray they find what they both are looking for, I pray they both find their peace.
Thank you Kesha for a beautiful and powerful song. May we all find the strength to forgive, give peace and pray for someone who needs it more than ourselves.
We all look at the male lion as being the strength, and rightly so, of the animal kingdom. He is massive, he is powerful, but he only hunts for one; himself. Now look at the lioness. She is the epitome of family. She is the one that takes care of her cubs, protects them and teaches them. She is also the one that determines who her mate will be, if only for a brief moment. She chooses the one that is the strongest so that she can carry on these genes and traits.
I found this image the other day and it got me thinking, which led me all the way to here. To tell my story. All 53 plus years of them. It wasn’t until I realized that I was done with the “king” in my life that my life truly took a turn; for the better (95% of the time). And this is where my story starts.
I created this blog in the hopes of helping others. Staying positive in an all-too-consuming-selfish society is not an easy task for any of us. But maybe if I can get you to laugh a little, cry a little, and breathe a little, you will know you are not alone, none of us are alone. We just look for someone to be our little stepping stone and building block as we go along in this life.
So, enjoy: life, this site and the ability to laugh!
