It's like an analogy a friend used to use a lot. She always said that as we move through life, and reflect on our own lives, it's as if we are wearing glasses. The deeper we look, the more we learn, the more our prescription changes. Sometimes our "new" glasses make things look much clearer. Sometimes they make things seem cloudier. Sometimes we just want to throw the "glasses" away and bury our heads in the sand till life passes.
|What path goes to the end of the rainbow?|
Massachusetts, July 2007
As pointed out to me earlier tonight, four months ago I never thought I'd be able to do what I'm doing today. I thought it would be impossible to reach the goal that was set for me, and at times, it certainly did feel painfully impossible. Looking back at those boulders in my path from where I am now? They seem so small and insignificant. But where I was then? They were giant, immovable boulders completely blocking my path. Little did I know that I was exactly where I was supposed to be at that moment, facing exactly what I was strong enough to face at that time.

I just wish He didn't trust me so much." -- Mother Teresa
