One of my reflections for today...and probably tomorrow ♥

(I copied this from Lux on FB :)

"The past does not equal the future. Because you may have failed a moment ago, all day today, or for the last six months,or for the last sixteen years,or for the last fifty years of your life - doesn't mean anything.

All that matters is....

what are you going to do NOW?"~ Anthony Robbins

A Day at the beach, a metaphor for life~

                                                                  (A blast from the past, but still relevant today)

Sometimes the view before our eyes...

Does not prepare us for what is looming up behind-
The big dark cloud crept over us, but the sun peered around it's thick edges, stretching rays of light beyond the temporary borders of the storm.

I stood in the cloud's shadow and looked up- reassured by the light, yet chilled by the winds that blew stinging sand against my exposed skin.

As with many things in life, I waited it out. I hunkered down- put up the umbrella, called the kids in close to me, and we watched the giant dark clouds sail out over the ocean until we were safe.

No thunder rolled, no lightening flashed- just the threat of a storm...and an empty threat in the end.

I'm glad I didn't scramble for the car- or run in a panic over "what might be".

I'm glad we stayed, and played in the waves, and found courage to stick it out- even when things looked bad...

I know- I know...this is the way to live life.
With our eyes open, with courage, and a willingness to be patient and wait.
