To stand alone is a very powerful thing in this world.
To allow yourself to experience someone else's love, that takes courage.

Last night I was done, tears were filling my eyes, the world was shattering around me and this enormous feeling was sitting so heavily on my shoulders. Not knowing what else to do. I just sat with the feeling and breathed. While everything was crumbling around me, I decided enough was enough. At the beginning of the year I had set a goal to give myself more spiritual time and allow good things into my life without question. So far...well let's just say it wasn't quite happening. For that reason, I decided that it was time for a change; it was time for me to give a little bit of myself to something bigger. So this morning at 8am I found  myself sitting in the first row of a beautiful morning mass.

I realized this morning that sometimes when everything has been going so well, we as creatures of entitlement need our lives nudged a bit in a different direction. This is not to break us down, but to remind us that good things in life are not a right yet an earned blessing. As easy as it can be to get caught up in one's own life and well being, true reward comes from a shared happiness with others. Good things happen to good people. This much is true. However once those good things happen, it is up to us to take the time to be grateful, and humble for the blessings we are given. It is when we forget what brought us to where we are, that bad energy surrounds us.

Take pride in who you are, be humble for your blessings, treat those around you with respect, and always give your thanks.

Remember in this world, no one goes it alone.
