THE UNFOLDING

I'm one of those people that thinks that everything happens for a reason. 
I believe in Karma.  Good and bad.
I think that there is a plan for us.
We have a destiny.

In the hardest of moments when Cooper is screaming and I don't want to do it on my own,
when I'm ready to throw up my hands and call it quits,
I try to remind myself,
there is a greater good.

I allowed myself to imagine today what it must be like for those who don't believe in anything bigger.
I imagined that life in that mindset must be so hard.
To think that bad things are happening and not being able to confide in the creator himself,
I just can't imagine.
I think it would be lonely.
You can have your parents, your friends, your coworkers, your sisters
but they don't compare.

I'm not "super religious", but I'm religious.
I attend church.
I believe.
I don't believe in pushing my beliefs on you.
I think the "super religious" can't accept that others believe differently than they do.
That's not me and that's not the point of this post.
I just think it's good, it's comforting, to believe in something bigger.

The days are still hard, the nights are still lonely but,
my destiny is unfolding and I know it's going to be beautiful,
it's going to be full,
and it's going to be bright.
I know this because I believe in something bigger.

  1. Ah I've been so conflicted about my own beliefs these past few years. I used to no so sure about what I believed in but now, not so much. I envy you with your certainty and the hope and optimism it brings.
