Life sure is funny. Sometimes things seem to effortlessly and seamlessly fall into place while other times it seems no matter what you do, something is still stuck in your way.
I've learned through my own stubbornness and refusal to give up, that I can become rigid in my ways, fiercely holding on and missing the opportunity to see a simpler way. It is quite profound when we learn how to soften and let go.
Spirit has assisted me in this wisdom, and has shown me how to endure, survive, thrive, and rise above. It has gifted me a quiet inner strength to keep returning to center whenever I am knocked off balance.
I have been a person of faith my entire life, but it wasn't until the loss of our second child where I fully understood that my strength comes from the grace of God. When we find ourselves aligned with the purpose of our life - fulfilling the gifts that are given at birth and then shared with the world; this is when we find ourselves filled with unending energy, strength, and courage.
Living our life fully requires faith. Faith is the trust in the wisdom of the unknown. Where there are no guarantees, no certainties, just pure trust in the higher source of all things. My hope in sharing my stories, both joyful and sorrowful, is that you come to know the current of love and grace that lies within you, and that you allow these forces to support you in living the fullest life.
