Random Epiphanies


I used to equate alcohol with fun. I realize one has nothing to do with the other.

I realize that if I should ever want a glass of wine, or a beer - I can. And that's okay
It has taken me into adulthood to realize that our parents were once us and now we are them. And that's okay.

I realize that if you're genuinely happy with yourself and comfortable in your skin - everybody around you will know it. And that's something to strive for.

I realize that inspite of how inadequate for him I feel some days, my autistic son is growing into quite the fine young man, all on his own. And that's beautiful & something I'm thankful for. Every day.
I realize that if you just 'let go and let God', things really do turn out for the better. And that's a blessing.

I realize it's best to take one day at a time & deal with each thing as it comes. Because half the things we concern ourselves with never come to be. And that's great insight.
And lastly, I realize that if I: keep my head up, think only positive thoughts, surround myself with positive people, be kind to others & to myself, allow myself to play, stay prayerful and thankful, allow myself to give & receive love, take the high road, and smile -

That life can be pretty sweet. And that's an awesome thing :-)

Pictures by me. :-}
