Most of us cross paths everyday. We nod, we say hello but how much do we know about each other. Each of our lives’ is a separate and precious journey. No matter how happy, sad, painful, tragic or confusing it may be, it is unique and beautiful. No matter if we hurt others or if we ourselves were hurt, it happened and it is part of our story. If we think we can have complete control over this journey, our journey will wake us up… usually with a very unpleasant surprise. When we get comfortable with life, life will evolve unexpectedly, rapidly and even in your darkest times. More than genetics, money or education, it is our journey who defines who we are. It defines what kind of person you are. Not the experiences you encountered nor the happy or traumatic events you may have endured. But rather how we dealt with those events and how we continue to deal with those events; when we evaluate ourselves and how we treat others. Your journey is part of your story. But it is not the complete story of who and how you are. You are a soul, a spirit, who has traveled through this life and along the way; you learned and gathered bits and pieces from here and there. And you, yourself, have woven together a soul, a spirit. And that is who you are today. You define… you. Oh, and just in case you thought your journey, your story was over… surprise, its not. My professor once told me…”Survival is never certain. And when there are no more leaders to follow, you must become one”. So keep weaving. You are not finished yet. It is never to late to define who you are.
