Today was a day that I felt quite alone. I know that I am not alone, I know that there are many people there for me, but still I felt alone.

At first I looked upon this with  depressing attitude. After further reflection I realized that sometimes we need to feel this aloneness. Once we move past the sadness we can see things for what they really are, we begin to see all the people that we do have in our lives. We may even realize that there are some there that we did not realize.

I spent most of the day with a very sad outlook, but then it dawned on me...my life is still pretty good.
Sure thre are difficulties...
husband ALWAYS working just to make ends meet
beautiful children to take care of (both blessing and at times cause of some stress)
teenage son (oh so many worries there, but also a blessing)
very ill parents
friends going through rough times
and many more

but, so much to be thankful for...
beautiful girls
wonderful son
hard working and loving husband
friends who I know deep down are always there for me
parents who even though we have had and still have some difficulties do not judge too much
parents who have always been there for me even when I did not make the choices they had originally
              wanted for me
a roof over my head
clean water to drink
food on the table
and soooo much more...

Life is pretty good even when it seems it is at its worst. There is much room for improvement, but we have to work with what we have, and right now this is my life.

We have to take what we are given and make it work...what other choice is there.

Focus on the good things.


Meditate, meditate, meditate.


Love and Light


  1. I like your blog! Today I woke up feeling very much the same: Alone, but in a kind of rebirth; a sort of clarity and loneliness all mixed up together. It is very clear and breezy in Hawaii today after much rain and feels like fall. Anyway, thanks for connecting.. Much Love and Aloha to you Hippie Mama :-)

  2. Thank you for stopping by. I have been going through many transformations lately and have felt the need to write about them. I also read your book and really connected with it.
    Love to you as well
