I Want to Dance
A very long time ago, someone very special to me, wrote the following words...
"I know you're confused. I know you're doubting. I know you're looking for guidance that can't be provided, or when provided, trusted or accepted. Lyrics that have helped me may help you, but the decision, and will as always, is yours."
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
I Hope You Dance - Lee Ann Womack
In recent weeks, and most especially recent days, my emotions have been riding the roller coaster of reality. The reality of my past, my now, and my future. In riding this roller coaster, I have spent many hours just wanting to get off! Wanting my emotions to find a smoother ride.
Then suddenly, I remembered his words, and I have felt so much better! At the time they were posted I was a woman lost in a world of unreality, and they did have meaning. But, today, they have so much more meaning. They fit where I am, and where I want to go. The ride is sometimes more frightening than I would like, sometimes moving way too fast, sometimes even too slow for comfort, but I got on it, and I am going to ride it out.....because, I know, I just know, living life, taking risks, learning to love fully again, it's all worth it!
Once again, I wish to tell him...Merci, je t'adore.
