Floating In Life
As I float along in life, I remember things in the past.
My sixth birthday was full of joy, with my family and friends surrounding me. Balloons floating aimlessly in the air, yet secured to the chairs. We played fun games, laughed and giggled the day away with not a care in the world.
Becoming a teenager was very exciting. I vividly recall make-up day. Friends got together and painted each other’s nails, styled their hair, and experimented with using cosmetics. And, of course, the conversations revolved around boys.
Age sixteen was very special. I gained a bit of independence. Receiving my driver’s license paved a way for me. I joined the workforce part time , earned my pay, and made decisions when spending the money.
Each year I faced many changes in my life. Some experiences were happy, some sad, and there were many challenges.
Life is a journey and we learn many things along the way. A great deal of which is learned long after we need them. I can look back and see many things that I wish I had known years ago, but life is that way.
I know everything starts from within. There is the belief in myself, forgiveness, love, gratefulness, courage and patience.
