This moment

On this day the 16th May 2008,  six years ago my husband was officially diagnosed with Cancer. From this moment forward our lives changed, never to be the same again. We displayed strength and courage and lived each day to the fullest. Yes there were sad days and very low days and days that we held each other so tight like we were never going to let go but there were also days that were filled with joy and laughter.

Recently I had forgotten this wonderful lesson. I forgot to live in the present moment and had found myself falling into the trap of wishing for something that wasn’t possible.

It is ok to say that sometimes life is sad and sometimes we get hurt and sometimes we feel vibrant and sometimes we feel invincible. Life seems to serve us up exactly what we need to grow even though sometimes it is very hard to see this.

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.” 
― Eckhart TolleA New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

A good friend gave me these flowers today and they have not only brightened up my house but also my thinking – thank you.
