Picking up the Pieces

At what point in your life is it time to pick up the pieces and move forward? Too often, we become saddled by life's challenges and trials. Instead of looking ahead, we begin living in the past memories of those challenging events. We start asking all the what if's and whys; and we quickly get hung up on them.

How is your perception?

What we may believe to be initially true may not be what we think it is at all. It is very interesting how many varied perspectives individuals may have on the exact identical object. If you look at the image to the left, what do you see? Some of you may see a young woman, some of you may quickly identify the elderly lady.

Let it be

I understand that even in the best conditions, awful things happen. A loss of a loved one, unemployment, disease or accidents, among other disparities, can and will happen during our lifetimes. In fact, one or more of these events are almost guaranteed. We are, after all, mere mortals. The truth is that we are all born with our own expiration dates. Life is a priceless gift that should never be taken for granted yet on the other hand, it shouldn't be lived through anxiety and stress.
