Its not as bad as it seems


EVERYONE CAN COMPLETE that sentence from their own perception or observation of how life has treated them. Regardless to the situations you may face or the devastating moments that destroyed your spirit, it’s not the end of the world. That moment of disappointment or anguish will pass. You only feel the residue of it’s after affect, a residue that is identified by the human mind and thus transmitted throughout the body. As a result, you perception of the event produces an outward effect to match the inner emotions. But it will pass…. The key to overcoming all trials or tribulations that cross our path it to embrace and let go. Embrace the purpose of the trials/tribulations….but let go of the lingering after effect that haunts and torments your mind. Each day is filled with new grace and mercies. Leave yesterday where it is, and focus on today as we hope for the future.

An Up CLose & Personal Journey Of Inspiration

20130724-163619.jpg“I should’ve prayed that day. Maybe, just maybe, a few hours ago would’ve been different. Who am I kidding; everything led up to that moment. This is the first time I have been in the hospital. I am speechless. The cool sheets rest upon my lifeless body. The cold silence within the room carries the beeps echoing from the heart monitor. I watched the nurse slowly walk into the room. I think she hoped for some improvement, or at least a different display on the EKG. I wanted to reach out and touch her, but I don’t think she would have felt my grasp. As she walked past me, I saw her emotions pouring down. I smelled hopelessness, if it had a fragrance. I regret driving that night. I blame myself for bringing the others into my state of mourning. Bitterness, hatred, and agony possessed me. You know, it wasn’t even about Max or what he stood for. I was drowning in emotions. Sadly, I knew that something happens after death, but I just didn’t want to know what that something was. Regardless of what the EKG displays, and what’s written on the chart hanging at the end of the bed, this will be my last time in here. I’m afraid of the things I’ve seen, and the unforgettable sounds I’ve heard. The indescribable … I’m not going to tell you what I saw, because it doesn’t matter. As I said before, I shouldn’t have driven that night. Had I known the outcome of that night, I would have prayed nonstop. Maybe, just maybe, prayer could have prevented that night.”
