Beautiful Moments. Life is like that.

I changed the title of this post several times. I was going to write “Just going to keep trying” because it has gone from a few hard days to a few terrible days. It is difficult to stay in the frame of mind that requires staying positive when bouts of depression and pain kick in. All I can say is if you hang in there it will pass and it is starting to pass. And that is what I constantly remind myself. Life is like that. Full of ups and downs, hills and valleys. (Chuckling) I don’t think I have really ever hit the height of a peak in my life, but I am working in that direction. There is so much I want to say and to do. On days that I think that I can’t do “this life” anymore I remind myself of how far I have come and how much I want to do. I look out the window and look at the sun or if there is no sun, I look at the clouds and the rain. I look for one beautiful thing and go on from there.

I was sitting at the table trying to think of something to write the other day and I saw something fluttering from the pine trees in the back. At first I thought they were butterflies or small birds. But, they were seed pods from the trees. They released them in mass. Small, brown seed pods, whirling from the trees and carried on the wind. They flashed colors of gold and brown in the sunlight as they were carried away. I wish I had my camera I would have taken a picture or video. But, it was over as quickly as it started. I am a nature person and love the outdoors and I have never seen that. It was beautiful, graceful, and peaceful. 

Life is like that. Moments of beautiful when you least expect it.

Blogging 101: Day 4 New adventures in Reading

I have begun following and reading other people’s blogs and I am finding some very interesting people. I love the different viewpoints, the different ideas people have to blog about. I have also gotten some followers myself and am looking forward to interacting with them and reading what they have to say. There are times I am feeling a bit overwhelmed and hope I have time to read people’s blogs, blog on my blogs and begin in earnest on writing the three books I have already started and possible working on three others with a friend. I am also going to school to get a Certificate in Project Management so there is heaps of stuff on a plate that I feel is too small sometimes. But, I know if I arrange things right I can keep up with it all. 

Here is a list of some of the people I am following:

I hope that everyone has a safe and happy Easter Holiday for those who participate and for those who do not. May you all find blessings in your life.
