Life has a nasty way of changing things up just when we’ve decided we like things just the way they are. Most of the time, we shake out the cobwebs, gather our wits, and trudge along on the new path, good or bad, because, well, that’s life.
But sometimes, through no fault of our own, without warning or choice, life as we know it comes crashing down around us. Everything changes, suddenly, seriously, permanently. We blink and the world as we know it is gone, to be replaced with a future filled with uncertainty and fear.
The shear memory of that feeling still rocks me to my core. Even though it’s been a few years now – not long, and forever – my loss still looms over me.
But I haven’t just survived my tragedy. I have thrived.
It’s a touchy thing to admit out of context, and I’m sure there are those who might even be offended by such a bold statement, but the fact is that I am stronger, kinder, and more hopeful, despite – no, because of – the biggest loss I have ever suffered.
In fact, I have discovered a profound and overwhelming sense of peace, awe, and joy in virtually everything and everyone around me. Better yet, I’ve learned how to tap into this well of euphoria at will, any time I want.
I have been given a gift of life and joy. And the best part about it is, the more I share it, the bigger it becomes. If you’ve read this far, you’re here for a reason.
Discover the power of unlimited joy.
