Riding The Tide

"I am not afraid of storms, for
I have learned how to sail my ship."
~Louisa May Alcott~


I've made it through difficult times before. And I always landed on my feet... maybe not dancing, maybe not always sure about what to do next. But things always turned out for the best. It was good that I kept my sense of humor and never lost my smile. I may not always have all the answers but - at least - I am willing to hope... and try... and believe.

I went through rough waters last July. Little did I know then that it was some sort of a rite of passage for me. I was at a crossroads again and I didn't know which way to go.

And so, I let the tide lead me.

Slowly, the new path unfolded. A life-altering change was due. The realization overwhelmed me but it no longer scared me. I knew in my heart that this was meant to happen.

For 15 years, I set my sail in only one direction. In this kind of profession, the courtroom is the ultimate arena for wit, wisecracks and a fervent spirit. Litigation kept my blood alive. The challenge and stress that each case brought emboldened me more.

I never imagined that the day would come when I will say "No More."

But that day has come.... and I am embracing the change.

Happily.

With so much anticipation.

Things always happen for a reason.

I am riding the tide and enjoying the journey.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
