Dancing, Every Moment of the Journey

        This week, I decided we needed to lighten things up a bit.  I've been going on about such heavy topics lately, and while they have their own merit, I do have the occasional, lighter moment, and so should you!  However, I never, really know what is going to fall out of my head, so we'll see when we get there.

To React, or To Transform?

        Sometimes when I begin the process of finding the inspirations for these posts, it works for me to go randomly searching for a quote which stands out to me, and I let it grow from there.  But this time, I found myself actually looking for a quote that went with what I was experiencing and how I was feeling.  So now you get to find out what I've found, and a bit more about it.

Resilience in the Face of the Wrong

Ever have one of those moments when you think,
"If I have one more thing hit me, I'm going to give up."
And then it's like Life smirks at you and says,
"Oh yeah? Let's see about that!"
And it throws one more thing at you.

What is up with that anyway?
How cruel does Life have to be?
How many things must we bear, before we are permitted 
to give in, and give up?

The Light Left Behind from a Shooting Star

        This past week the world as I know it lost a very beautiful, talented, amazing woman who influenced countless lives easily listed in the thousands, each in individual, dedicated, and personal ways.  At her passing, her Facebook timeline alone has been overwhelmed with hundreds of tagged posts and direct messages, expressing our grief and gratitude for this woman who did so much for so many, each with Likes and comments from others who may or may not know each other, but who are now uniting in a common bond: love for a shining star of this world.

        Who could possibly touch so many, individual lives, as a friend, mentor, mother, many things, to so many people, having known them, personally, and having shared love and light on such an incredible scale?
