Curve in the Road
When life throws you a curve
and you cannot fathom why...
Why is this happening?
What can possibly be the purpose?
it is what we all have to face
in one way or another.
No matter how threatening it feels,
inner strength you didn't know you had,
will come forth and surprise you.
The valiant soul you are
will surpass you and uphold you
when you are feeling overcome.
So hang on....
all things pass.
And, when your heart is thrilled with new results, celebrate.
Celebrate with all your heart.
Savor the gifts that life offers.
Cherish the things you hadn't noticed before;
the air you breathe,
the water slapping at the shore,
the soft cloud in the sky,
the little kids playing in the park,
purring of a kitten.
the sound of a quietly strummed guitar,
and yes, the neighbors dog
There’s something in it all you missed before.
Now you have the chance.
Take it moment to moment.
You know now the foolishness
the folly, the petty ways you'll leave behind.
You have struggled to come out of your cocoon.
You have worked hard,
You have released yourself
from the things that kept you locked up.
You have traveled beyond that curve...
Now free yourself,
and fly into that new zest for life you rightfully earned.
Have some peace of mind...
Remember you have triumphed.
You are stronger than before.
You have gained appreciation
for those things of which you were unaware
and cherish the challenges that brought you to this new place.
