My first post, my maiden post was June 2, 2007 at 4:58 am. The events of the last couple of days almost made me miss marking this anniversary. It is important. And I cannot let someone Else's drama take me away from remembering and celebrating this transitioning life.
Where did the time go? and who was that woman compared to this Grown Woman today! I have been through it. I mean to walk through fire and know you were burned and yet still stand strong believing that better days are just right now. I am not concerned about tomorrow. I am rooted firmly in this moment. I am celebrating this joyous life right now. I have proven time and time again that I can do and be anything I want. That I get to decide who I want to love. I get to invite joy and peace and love in my life. I do happily.
None of the things that have happened in the last several years has killed me. Yes brought me to my knees, but on my knees is where God would have me to be. Fine tuning my prayers and giving reverence to this big life. I am grateful. I am grateful for the love that stays present in my life. I am grateful for my True Love friends, who by sheer will alone kept me moving forward, never letting me alone, never leaving me to maneuver the dark on my own. In the hardest part of the storm they surrounded me. They shielded me and they loved me. Ride or die.
I am grateful for being a mother. I am not the best or the smartest, but I am the most committed. I am the most daring and I am the most fearless. I love my children beyond this life.
Blogging has rescued this heart and soul. It has become a place of giving and taking. It has become a place of meeting and discovering. It has become my sabbatical, my ashram, my mecca, my Mount Kilimanjaro.
I have no idea if this Life in Transition will be here next year. I hope so, but most importantly, I am here now.
Happy Anniversary to A Life In Transition!
