Tonight's blog is short, since I have to make an airport run tomorrow. So much to say, but I will keep it succinct. Don't know exactly where to start or what I wish to place on record publicly. I know I haven't given my bucket happiness list yet, but I will get to that very soon.
I've said this before, but it's worth repeating. Over the past few years and especially within recent times, I've been meeting some truly interesting people.
They come with so many equally interesting diverse stories and life experiences. We connect on a deeper level. There is the same fire and drive that I see in myself, sometimes even more intense. It's like a breath of fresh air.
Their passion for what they do and their interest in my passion and story is also encouraging to say the least. For this I am soo thankful (You know who you are!)
Sometimes I wish I can capture it all and document it in some way. I am so glad to be surrounded with positivity as I am able to feed off of this energy, also giving off my own to create a dynamic so splendid, it makes me buoyant and able to ward off the negative when they arise.
Then I wonder why can't all relationships and all people you meet be like this! Negativity comes in some weird forms and places; sometimes we wish that we can eradicate it simply by blinking ourselves off to another location as in the 80s TV show I Dream of Jeannie. (Boy how I miss that show...they sure don't make TV like that anymore.)
I gotta say that it's hard not to react when faced with such toxicity, but it's a skill I am trying my best to master. In spite of this, I am hopeful and excited for what the future may bring. Sometimes when it seems like nothing is happening on the surface, big things are happening in the background, waiting to unfold in your life.
Be patient and trust that it will come. Most times this happens when you least expect. Stay open and be ready for it when it comes...because it's easy for this to pass us by when we are wrapped up in our own thoughts, fears and other distractions.
Sometimes we wish for things and when we get it we find ourselves wanting more or perhaps we are a bit ungrateful as a subconscious reflex...Still we know we should be giving praise, because we could never do this on our own. Human nature or not, we need to give credit where credit is due, humble ourselves and fight the urge next time.
You know how much I love sharing with you...I have more good news, but I will wait to share this one...you can wait a few more days right?!:-)
On another note, the count down is on to my trip to the Spice Isle...I can hardly wait! If you reside in Grenada and want to connect with me, please drop me a line on the contact form on your right or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best to you! Live a little, love a lot. Make it Count!
