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.

Isn't it amazing, how so few words can say so much. That is absolutely beautiful. Lyrics have such poetry hidden within them.

You had the courage to get on the ride, Sunny, and it will bring you good things. Too many step away, and backwards.

Hugs :)

Who can focus on the yesterday, today and tomorrow all at once? That would make any of us dizzy! How about just take a look at the today for the moment? Tomorrow will always be out there waiting.

I often curse my memory, but sometimes the right one makes an appearance, just when I need it most. They are beautiful words, what he wrote, and the lyrics...

Courage, something I often feel sadly lacking, but I do keep moving forward, even if they are baby steps.

Hugs backatcha! *VBS*

It has been very hard to focus, so easy to allow myself to get lost in all the worries and fears...I am trying to live today with more focus, and less worry...but, I kinda like some of my dreams for the gonna keep a look out in that direction too.

Hugs to you too!
