Every life journey has ups and downs..the merry go round, the ferris wheel...the spin cycle on the washing machine...and the questions of purpose, value, discouragement, with challenges through the funnel of faith and hope.
Scars are so much more then the initial injury, or marking of the surgery. The ongoing pain associated with the loss physically, emotionally, mentally can be a mountain you find yourself forced to climb, not by choice but sheer requirement as the only option in front of you.
Your best intentions will be tested in choosing Hope versus the alternative of Hopeless...Faith instead of Fear...Peace instead of Chaos...Joy not dependent on the circumstances but the inner strength found inside you were not sure existed until tried and tested.
So in my personal melt down and weak moment ..I call to the kindred sprits ..you know exactly who you are, grab the steering wheel of your heart and emotions.. together let us get back on the trail with knowledge that all has a reason...unseen yet wrapped in this moment.
Reach for the resources that surround, family, friends, helpers, grateful and thankful ...reach out..shift the thoughts ..pray...meditate. Together we will heal from scars and so much more.
As for me, music reaches into my soul and songs will feel like they have been written just for me, so Thank you; Tenth Avenue North.... " I have this Hope" ..I am definitely walking the unknown, constant questions ..purpose to the pain? I sure hope so...not wanting to live in fear but rather hope, in something/someone far greater then I.
