Celebrating Life!

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. —AGATHA CHRISTIE

Today I say I am glad to be alive! It is a good day the depression seems to have lessened for now and once more I can see the things that make my life worth living. Today for this day I can be glad for what I have and not regret what I don't. It is a little joy in a dark time.

A few weeks ago I learned of the death of someone who was a big part of my childhood, she and her sister were my only friends until I left for middle school, (in those days grade school only went to grade 5, middle school was 6-8, and then high school which was 9-13. To go to middle school I had to take a bus to the next town over), while the sisters still had another year of grade school. During that year a lot of things changed for me and for them and we drifted apart but I have always considered them my best friends. Since she was a year younger than me it sent me into a depressive episode. Mortality is such a frail thing.

Whoops, guess I haven't recovered as much as I thought or maybe that is why I am suddenly taking an interest in life again.

RIP Susie
Such a long time ago and I was such a bright-eyed kid, I wonder sometimes where she went? LOL do you ever look at old photos of yourself and have a hard time reconciling that child with the person you have become? 

Well, I certainly went off on a tangent today, but then I never know where my mind is going to take me when I start writing. 

Within each of us lies a wellspring of abundance and the seeds of opportunity. For each of us there is a deeply personal dream waiting to be discovered and fulfilled. When we cherish our dream and then invest love, creative energy, perseverance, and passion in ourselves, we will achieve an authentic success. Breathnach, Sarah Ban.
