When I was young, a childhood friend told me that if I held a buttercup beneath my chin, and my chin glowed yellow, it meant that I liked butter. Now, I tried the buttercup experiment, and sure enough, my chin glowed yellow. It was such a silly little amusement, but I remember smiling to myself knowing that a simple flower could say so much about me.
There are times in our lives where we reflect on where we are, who we are, and who we want to be or what we want to "get" out of life. It's during these times that we're at our most vulnerable. We often lose ourselves in the "could've been" scenarios that we really need to rise above before we can manifest the life we want to lead.
After a hectic 2013 and certainly a stormy start to a new year, I spent some time in reflection hoping to find a greater meaning and purpose for what my next few months and year will bring forth. We are all reminded daily of the powerful forces of nature and how it impacts our lives.
Life is sometimes filled with many roadblocks and hurdles for some. And once we've gotten used to encountering these "walls," we become accustomed to them being there as a constant reminder of what might've been.
Have you ever stopped to notice how some people just seem to cope better with life's circumstances? Is it because they're lucky or is it because they've just learned how to accept the blessings that life has given them?
Have you ever heard Lee Ann Womack's song? The first line of her hit lyrics begins with "I hope you never lose your sense of wonder..." Have you lost your sense of wonder and forgotten how to dance? Or worse still, you never learned how to dance? I want you to really think about those questions.
