What lies behind us and what lies before us are
small matter compared to what lies within us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
May 6th - Love finds a way
I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.
Trying to maintain control in this life is a bit like trying to maintain control on a roller coaster. The ride has its own logic and is going to go its own way, regardless of how tightly you grip the bar. There is a thrill and a power in simply surrendering to the ride and fully feeling the ups and downs of it, letting the curves take you rather than fighting them
Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by.
When we see people on a roller coaster, we see that there are those with their faces tight with fear and then there are those that smile broadly, with their hands in the air, carried through the ride on a wave of freedom and joy. This powerful image reminds us that often the only control we have is choosing how we are going to respond to the ride.
Life is like a roller coaster, live it, be happy, enjoy life.
