Reflections

This movie always makes me smile...and this song is just old school happiness for me.



My utterly favourite thing about life is that you'll never know what tomorrow brings.
Once in a while you come across a mirror held to your face when you least expect it and allows you look back into a reflection of who you see with lost forgotten remnants of who you used to be...
Once in a while something comes along that inspires you in more ways than one...centers you and lets you just be..
Although I've been busy with calls at work which is why I havent updated in a while, floating is how I would describe myself these last couple of weeks...in a fast paced world where everything happens in a blink of an eye...where so much of us live for ourselves...a breath of fresh air blows through that takes you back to a slower time, another you...and all of a sudden I realized what the problem was...Just like that, I had simply forgotten.
I forgot how to really pay attention to others...I forgot how to focus on all the positive blessings in my life...I forgot how to empathize and how to not make it all about me...I forgot that sometimes being in control is not always a good thing...a little flexibility goes a long way...and I forgot above everything that in genuine people true humility shines through creating a stronger presence than I could ever have imagined.
Im ecstatic and thankful at the same time for the reminder...I thought nothing could surprise me by now but Im constantly surprised, and in a really good way...Sometimes when you least expect it...a sudden bend in the road brings back beautiful memories of goodness and happiness and optimism....relishes us to suddenly be inspired and motivated once more and comforts us with the knowledge that honestly...no matter what we are going through...everything really will be alright.

So heres to the bubbly twists and turns of life that take us to better places..I wish you all well xx

I recently got the reality check u were talking about..it hit me straight across the face in a time i wouldn't have ever chose :S
Being in control of things gives us a sense of comfort knowing that our plans are being achieved or everything's to our liking..The way the Universe works..Nah-uh,ain't happening lol..In my case, for a certain period of time trying to be too in control and thinking it showed me i had none, unraveling into a series of events i hated myself so much for. I made everything about me and for me that i turned into a miserable person and thank God x1000000+ that i had someone brave enough to tell me honestly, otherwise i can't begin to think beyond the point i reached!
Everything can be alright =)

Gorgeously put...I loved that Ephemeral.
Its so amazing how thankful we become when the curtain is pulled away from our eyes...thank God for the people in life who you never expect to teach you a thing or two about living it.
Hugs xx
