Not long ago I was sitting in the middle of a grass field, grateful that the rain had stopped for a day, feeling the warmth of the sun beating down on me and enjoying a Sheryl Crow concert (thought she would be taller). As the night progressed, I came to the realization my life was back on track and there was normalcy about it, I was having fun, and I was smiling!
I am sure life has been treating me well for some time now, but I guess with all the “to dos” I had not noticed just how happy I was. It was this moment that penetrated the stress and daily distractions which made me realize I am doing “A” okay.
We all have a part to play in this life; sometimes we are the villain, the victim and even the hero (depending who you ask). Point being God has a plan for us, and we have a choice on how we live our lives. Living in perfection is out of the question, but we can live a joy-filled life, even after divorce. However, I discovered that without taking the time to slow down, relax and enjoy myself I might have missed the fact that I am happy.
Like in the movies life is full of re-takes, and with each one, we learn and get better. The take away from this post- each day you get on that stage called life, you will eventually move from the broken, hurt person to a victorious, joy-filled one. It might happen gradually as to where one day you are sitting under the vast blue sky, and it dawns on you that God is good, life is good, and you have grown and overcome so much. It is important to take things off autopilot and conduct a reality check; you may find you are doing pretty darn good yourself.
