Good morning everyone-
I am reflective today. I sometimes stop and take a look at my life to assess where I am headed. I think that it started this morning as I noticed the trees. They are beginning to bud and some have bloomed with these beautiful and colorful arrangements. The scene triggered some thoughts and memories and I was set adrift on a memory bliss. I also thought of my life 5 years from now. Again, I wondered what my life will be like?
The other day, I was listening to a Jazz cd by an artist named King Pleasure. He was popular back in the day with his vocal styling that made James Moody's song, "Moody's Mood For Love" popular. In one of his songs he sings, "I'm so in love with where I've been but afraid of where I'm going..." I believe that phrase sort of encompasses what I somtimes feel about my life. However, I believe in my heart that I can control my destiny. I know that I am going to be afraid sometimes, but If I have an action plan I can have some say in my destination. Fear? Fear is good to a certain extent as long as it doesn't control me. I know that it is easier said than avoided. Fear has certainly held me back on occasion in every aspect of my life. It has also propelled me to the next level when I was determined to triumph over it. I am sustained by self-determination and prayer. I am going to continue to strive for my goals in life and I want you to do the same. We all have the potential to do something great even if it's only noticed by a few. Take care and embrace the sun. Peace~
