I really try to read, really read, many blogs. Unfortunately, I would rather look at the pictures and click links. But sometimes I start reading someones personal thoughts made public through their blog, and I can't stop. That is what happens when I visit A Sweet Life. Here is one of her sweet entries:
Living a sweet life...I often think it's about being open to life, letting everything that touches me teach me. That's what I want for my life but often find it easier to philosophize about than live. I want to stand in the center of life without wiggling away from intense feelings of joy or overwhelming feelings of fear and grief, to just be still in the unfolding of life and to learn to trust this crazy, unpredictable unfolding. To somehow find peace in the unknown and acceptance of the messiness, to look within and beyond to a place I used to know but have unknowingly burried beneath shoulds and should nots, a place that still lies underneath all the worries and wrinkles, somewhere below the memories of life, a place deeper than soul, and once there to rest and know with certainty that I have come home. And hopefully I can use this little corner of the cyberworld as a witness to that unfolding. As my fabulous friend Kel says, this is my blank canvas. I choose to paint the unfolding of my beautiful life upon its bright newness.
