A snapshot of thought

in a moment of time...

If there is one thing I have learned thus far in life, it is this...
things do not always go as planned. 
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, after giving all you had to give, you are left confused and broken, with faith in your decision-making powers shattered.

Looking back I can see, I thought I had life, or some semblance of it, yet now my perspective has completly shifted. 

My heart has expanded, my empathy and compassion deepened. I've Let Go.

Perhaps life is more about learning to live in the moment, and less about planning it out ahead of time (as if we are in control).

Perhaps it is about taking time to simply live. 
To stop. 
To listen to the echoes in your heart,

"I love you my child, I'll never let you go."

Really now. That's All I Need. 

So, now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going out to dance in the rain.
