The Things That Make You Go Hmmm

Stealing one from Mr. Hall (for those that have been around for a few I know you get the reference).  I awoke this morning with my mind reflecting on a recent interaction.  Writing is so wonderful and it can be a great opportunity to express, process, and clear one's mind.  However, when one writes he/she has an understanding of the meaning behind their words, their intention of these words, and most importantly they are comfortable with their choice to share with others.  We all know that technology has taken the written word to another level.  Whether it is in this format, an email, text, etc.  The thing that makes me go Hmmm is often the reaction, interpretation, and quite honestly the misinterpretation of, that clearly goes against your intention.  Yes, we all have the right to have our own opinion, which is basically our own interpretation of.  However, one's opinion (interpretation of) is not often the truth... and because of this heavy emotion often can be projected towards the authentic one, the one who is whole, the one who has enough, the one who no longer looks to others for definition, or completion, or anything but companionship on the journey...

Life is wonderful.  Words can cause pain and suffering, and often they do.  The great thing about life is one's ability to embrace these moments with an open heart, and as always the opportunity to learn and grow.  It's hard at times, real hard, but never impossible or out of our reach.  So, keep on breathing, keep on living, and if yesterday was a tough one, may today be a better one, it's all good!
