I Dream of The Big Island…

It is difficult to believe that it has been almost a year since we departed for our Our Big Island Adventure!  How can this be?  I still dream about this magical journey!  As I relive this beautiful trip in my head, I thought I would share the links to the series, just in case you might need a tropical escape, as well…

Be Still

When I consider this adventure called life, I quickly come to the realization that it will be the longest, most beautiful and most challenging journey I will ever embark upon.  There will be open meadows, filled with wildflowers, laughter and love.  It is during those moments that I will dance in the sunlight and give thanks for life’s blessings.

There will also be rough terrain, showered with tears that, at times, appear impassable. Yet, these moments will teach me so many valuable lessons and allow my soul to grow and flourish.

Regardless of life’s trail, know you are never alone!  You might not know your direction, but you  can always choose who you have beside you.  Surround yourself with individuals that you can GROW with, for these beautiful souls will feed you and make you feel alive.

Today, Be Still.  Reach out to those special souls that walk beside you at times, holding your hand and at other moments carry you, when you are unable to stand alone.  Take a moment to thank them for being such a beautiful part of your journey.  Celebrate this exploration of love and friendship, for it is a beautiful and unique gift.

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You
