Life is an Unexpected Journey

Life is an unexpected journey. It is filled with ups and downs and so many twists and turns. Sometimes we feel so lost, only able to see right in front of us. At other times we know we are right where we are meant to be. Our lives are made up of so many moments: moments that fill our hearts with joy and and moments when we can’t stop crying. There are times when we are touched so deeply,and others when we just feel empty. There are days when we feel strong and assured, and others when we feel weak and wonder how we can go on. There are moments that we long to pass quickly and moments that we want to treasure forever. Life is an unexpected journey filled with so much. When we can embrace it all and learn from each part of the journey, we not only experience life more fully and find healing and meaning, but we also have more to offer to those around us. When we embrace all that life offers us it creates a deep well within, that not only refreshes us but allows others to drink as well. Viewed in this way, life is an unexpected journey, filled with so many gifts.

“All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.”
― Julian of Norwich
