With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought that I would write about how thankful I am for each and every day that I am given. Growing up in a very small town in Northern California, life was never easy. Coming from a poor up bringing as far as the material world, but we were rich in Family values and Family Love. I was taught at a very young age, it’s not what you have, it’s what you give as you go along life’s path.
I always learnt that I didn’t have to have the biggest and the best and my parents would always say, “Good things come to those who wait.” So, to this day, I live by those words. Sometimes life doesn’t go the way that we think it should, and many times in Life it can take a different path, one that not even you could have imagined.
If someone would have told me that I was going to lose the use of my right arm for a while, lose my job of 20 years, start writing song lyrics, have songs recorded in Nashville, TN, become the co-owner of Indie Music Magazine, have over 10K Twitter followers in just a little over 2 years, have many wonderful fans all over the world, I would have said, “Your Crazy!”
But that is exactly what happened. See sometimes with Life there comes a time, when something we have no control over, can lead us to our passion and my passion has always been writing. I feel there are times that something bigger and greater takes control of our lives and sends us down a new and wonderful path. At the time this all happens we don’t understand it, and are even a little afraid of the changes that taking place, but if we follow what our hearts are telling us it takes us on a journey we never would have went on if we didn’t go through circumstances beyond our control.
Sometimes you may have to go through pain, loss, struggles, but keep pushing through and most of all never give up. Always be grateful and thankful in life because if you do, you too will find it’s true, that “All good things really do come true to those who wait.”
