Awaken your Secret Garden
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring. In Oregon, the song birds have been practicing in their choir since late February. The colourful blooms with their delightful fragrances are intoxicating. It puts a smile on my face. It has been awhile since I have written in my blog. Not that I have lost interest, but I have been recovering from another near death experience that put me in the hospital for two weeks.
The spring is a season for new beginnings. During my stay in the hospital awaiting my fate with this life, I had time to reflect on the value and importance of quality friendships, among other things. In our small window of opportunity that we call life.It becomes important to let go of the past. New things can grow when the dead wood is pruned. Although it is painful, growth will take place in a healthy life. It is repaired.
I am a genuinely good man, however many tragic things have happened to me. I rarely pondered on as to why all of this has happened to me. I have always hoped for the best and somehow wonderful things have happened for me. I am choosing to survive. I am here breathing the sweet spring air. My challenges have given me courage.
Giving up the past and beginning with a fresh start has been the most amazing part of my new plane of existence. I have freedom like I have never known. I feel free to make my own choices. forge my own path, till the earth, water the plants and watch something wonderful grow.I am a changed man. Stronger and healthier; emotionally, spiritually and physically. I am happy more than ever. I have new found friends,old hurts have been healed. Life is wonderful.
take care with much love,
