“Peace is not something you wish for, it is something you make, something you are, something you do, and something you give away. ”― Robert Fulghum
I begin a new life
while being a compilation of every day that has passed before.
I see perfect joy
in the innocent faces and laughter of my grandchildren
and long to be innocent again…
I thirst for adventure
like a youth setting out for the first time adulting.
I am not young
but I don’t feel as old as the calendar indicates.
I look behind
only to reflect on how far I have come.
I have a goal
to live the rest of my life with passion and joy.
I am positive
that life is what I make of it.
I crave true friendship
in a world full of negativity and backbiting.
My soul knows
that peace comes from within and I must make changes.
But I realize
that while necessary, change can be hard.
However, growth requires
letting go when appropriate and looking forward to the future.
My heart explodes
with joy of new beginnings that lie ahead.
Because new beginnings, joy, innocence, adventure, reflection, passion, positivity, friendship, letting go, and looking toward the future, are the only ways that I will find the peace that my soul craves.
