So I wake up this morning and find myself feeling good about the day. My past has been rough but has been made up of many positive people and events. I learned a long time ago that it is important to be thankful for the things we have in life. Appreciate the little things that is not always guaranteed.
Yesterday was a good day and although I am currently embarking on a path to understanding, it is made up of bumps, rocky roads and unexpected encounters. This may not be news to anyone since we all go through points in our life that are difficult and hard to get through.
“Receeded, resented and reconcile, our hearts broken by the vile; inconsistent, inappropriate means, all the while we sit in between.”—Skinner J.Tyler 2022
We sometimes think when we are in a difficult situation, there is no way out of it. We blame others close to us for our failure to accept our own incompetence. This is normal and we learn from it; growing over time into someone who understands. That is the true way of course; growing, understanding ourselves; as well as others.
We all have a place in this world where we come to understand it isn’t always about us; but rather, about those around us who need us more than we are able to understand at times. There may be issues we don’t understand or feel because we are not mind readers. We learn as we go.
Today is a day unlike no other, where the overcast is like a grey sadness that reminds me, it can’t always be sunny but if we look around and understand the beauty in this; we can then move on. Move forward to a place that works better for us, not as individuals but as humanity and everything that makes us who we are.

So in the end there is sadness and there is happiness as well, but moving on and accepting the fact that there is more to life than ourselves. We grow as people through a difficult time that seems more chaotic than ever before but don’t worry; nothing changed and it has always been chaos. For the human race knows chaos since it is all we have created over the last century and centuries before; world wars, poverty and sickness.
We have also done some amazing stuff throughout those years as well. Many diseases have been made non-existent due to people who helped humanity see that we can overcome anything if we all work together. We are not individuals but are a group of people who show courage when times are tough, show compassion when others need us and show true love when we see each other for who they truly are.
