Looking deep Within

12. What is the difference between living and existing?

Amazingly, there is a very large & distinct difference between these two. Existing is what one does from day to day, numbly, methodically going through life. Wake up, have coffee, shower, kids to school, commute to work, say hello to co-workers, work, commute home, make or order supper, eat, sleep.
Methodical, routine, flat-line!

Living is when your senses, heart, and soul are active. One will still have a day such as described above, but many moments will be memorable, vivid, & wrapped in emotion.
Waking up becomes a bird’s chirp off in the distance that slowly, gradually comes closer until your senses tell your eyes to open. Your eyes don’t just open & burn, instead they take in a whirlwind of color and motion. Your sense of touch is aware of your positioning and feels your sheet, blanket, or lack of one hugging you.
I’m stopping now, can you imagine how long this post would be if I described an entire day? 🙂

15. If not now, then when?

Tomorrow is never a good answer.

16. Have you done anything lately worth remembering?

Yes but it’s private.

17. What does your joy look like today?

My faith, family, home, friends, and love that I choose to surround myself with. Joy is smiling so much & so often – wrinkles appear in the corners of your mouth & you don’t mind. Joy is everyday that my husband & children come home.

Joy is life using all 120 crayon colors everyday not just the standard 8 most people choose!
When’s the last time you colored your world happy?

🙂 Blessings

The Road Thief

I wept in my sorrow and you said “Shh, it’s okay”

I ran from life, hiked up mountains, and crossed every river to escape, but-

You swept me off my feet and made me feel young.

You held my hand, comforted me, crushed my sadness and made me smile.

You showed me there was only living.

We laughed and we smiled. Together, we agreed to be one.

Grow old together, share life and love. I accepted.

With your best intentions, you could not avoid the call.

The road called to you and you dutifully answered.

It  took you hundreds of miles away.

Restless nights, tossing and turning, I wake alone.

How do I love you from a distance?

How do I feel you when you are so far away?

Will I be aged when we see each other again?

Will you be the same?

If I have accepted this fate, will I adapt?

Will I stay here, wait forever and hope you remember your way back home?

How does our story end?

Only time will tell if the road wins with its spell.
