Now don’t get me wrong, I really don’t want you to feel bad for me, I am good, honestly I am really trying to convince everyone now. I am doing good, life is great. I have found a safe equilibrium in which to live. I have listened to the advice, listened to the soft and kind words from friends and family alike and I can see the truth in life, truth in living and the reason for just being. My life has changed dramatically yes but has it really changed for the worse, hell no! It has flown straight into the biggest and best change that I could ever have conceived. Why you say, well, it just so happens that now I am enabled to do all the things I dream of I long for, they are all within my grasp. A gentle shift of thought, a little nudge here, a rather big boot up the bottom there and here I am, writing a blog, pages from by book, writing songs, playing songs, recording songs, planning my and our future, building the dream, grasping what’s mine, loving wholeheartedly everyone and everything.
So really I can’t complain! I’m on the right spiritual path now, the yellow brick road to my end, my beginning. I am at one with myself, heck I can even tell myself I love you without cringing now. I know I am finally listening to the one, the dearest one ever, she is so close and has been so far for many years. Now today is one of those days that just pushes me that bit further to the other side so today is exactly the day that I need to be wholly, fully and both feet in to the pursuit of life.
