A Word for the Week


"In order to complete our amazing life journey successfully, it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse." Anthon St. Maarten
Above picture was a journey I once took through a cave in France.
Though I am showing you journey pictures I have taken, it isn't about where you
have gone, but how you have traveled through life.
"Not everyone will understand your journey. That's okay. You're here to live your life, not to make everyone understand." Banksy
What a thrill I never expected to have in my life. A visit to the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand.
These sweet ladies both touched my heart when I met them. There gentle spirits sang to me of love.
I think the thing that has made my journey so special is gentle women that have crossed my path.
My journey has been and is more bright because of women that sing to my soul.
We don't need to get on an airplane or travel far when we are open to special ones that touch us.
It is a journey we walk on each and every day.
We must be open to where the road leads us.
And be willing to go for it - jump into life!
The experience of the jump, the journey, is amazing.
Can you see the line I flew on and the platform down below where I landed.
I was flying with the birds and with each jump I was terrified.
But in the end the journey was worth it. I learned so much about myself. I was proud of myself for jumping and for the flight. It was a journey of a lifetime.
Where has your journey taken you?
What journey are you taking today, this week, and next year?
Be brave, dear ones!

Oh, what fun! My children did that zip lining in Costa Rica. That's such an adventurous picture of you, Marilyn. And I love that one of you and the elephant. The cave in France is very cool. Journey is a wonderful word, and I just took a journey at the start of this new year.

Wishing you more journeys in your lifetime, dear friend.

You have had wonderful travels but what I really love is that you've not only had a wonderful time but learned so many things on your different journeys. Big smiles.

I love what you say about how we travel is so much more important than where. Your travels have taken you to marvelous experiences and you've relished each one and enriched the lives of those you've met along the way, as they have enriched you. A beautiful post.

I love your pictures and I think the same as you. It is nice to travel and see different countries but the most important is the persons we meet and the exchanges between us.

I love how it is not about the destination but the journey that took you there. You have certainly made the most of the opportunities that have come your way.
