Have you ever looked at a photograph of yourself and thought of how many things have happened to you since that picture was taken? All of the dreams and desires you once had, you may now actually have. All of the unexpected situations and roadblocks you have encountered, you now have the strength and growth that came from them.
One picture shows the passage of time. Time truly changes everything and it changes us. We can look back on a photo from years and years ago and realize that we are not quite that same person anymore. We have grown and experienced so much since that photo was taken. We can look back at where we were and many of us never dreamed we would be where we are today. Hold onto photographs for they are capturing memories and a person that is ever-changing!
Have you ever had a certain event happen in your life that when you looked back so many smaller events had to take place for that one event to occur? There are so many instances in my life where things either came together or fell apart and it wasn’t until later, sometimes much later in life that I realized why. Looking back on life, it all seems to fit together like pieces of a puzzle.
I’m sure that many of us have felt, or still may feel like certain things may never happen. We often hear people saying things like “I’ll never get married,” “I’ll never have kids,” “I will never land my dream job,” etc. We spend so many hours, days, months, years wishing and hoping. It is true that in some cases we may not always be able to obtain what we desire and that is really difficult to accept, however many times though we eventually get our heart’s desires even if the timing was not what we had planned.
Though some of you may disagree, I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and that what is meant to be will always find its way. We may want something so badly, but it is not yet in our timing to receive it. It’s difficult to wait patiently for things that we desire and it can cause a lot of anxiety to wonder if our desires will ever come true, but one thing for sure, the older I get, I realize that things truly do seem to happen as they should.
I am a very deep thinker and feeler and I love to sit and think and ponder about life. I often think how so many things had to come together so perfectly to end up where I am now in my life. The times that really wore on me and tried me, made me stronger and wiser. Everyone sees life differently and has their own experiences and beliefs and it’s easier to see this reflection when you have come out of the tunnel versus when you are in it.
Life is definitely a crazy ride, a crazy journey, and it is beautiful in it’s own way. If one can really tune into the meaning of life, the good and the bad, it makes it that much more precious. Thank you all for reading as always and I wish each and every one of you all of your heart’s desires!
