Life is filled with ups and downs, good times along with bad times. Cursing life and the journey does us no good at all. I have come to love the journey and this road I have traveled.. even the hard parts… especially the hard parts. The rough patches I’ve lived have brought a greater appreciation for the magic and love life has to offer.

Life is hard and sometimes we feel like we just want to quit.. just check out so that we don’t have to deal with all these life lessons and obstacles that keep getting thrown at us. There are good things in life… things worth fighting for, things worth staying for. Don’t give up on life, on yourself and don’t give up the fight… when better times come around, you want to be able to enjoy them. Don’t give up. Better days are just around the corner.
Life brings us many lessons, throws at us many obstacles and as a result we have to weather many storms. Some days we just want to give up, not knowing how much more we can endure. What keeps me going is that hope and belief that something wonderful could just be around the corner. I don’t want to just survive life.. I want to enjoy it. I want to be here when that something wonderful does happen. I want to dance in the sunlight when the clouds finally part.
I took this photo today. At first I thought nothing of it .. just thought the color was awesome and it was the last of the summer blooms that we will be seeing this year. When I got home and downloaded it off my camera … I paused and looked at it a bit longer. My first thought was of the old saying “He loves me, He loves me not”… and I thought to myself.. I will label this photo… “He loves me”. So I posted it on my facebook wall and went about my business posting a few other things and liking a post here and there … supporting my friends and then I came back around to the photo. Again, I paused and just starred for a moment. There was something about this rose that I was connecting to and I wasn’t quite sure what that was.
Suddenly, the answer was clear and this phrase came from the tips of my fingers as I began to type out a new caption for it: “When everyone else has let go…You will find me still holding on”.
This pretty much sums up my life in a single phase… When everyone else has let go.. You will find me still holding on.
Always believing in the possibilities ahead.. always carrying hope of better days .. always holding on for whatever is to come… determined not to give up… still holding on.
