Ever since my cat Pickles has passed away…I find myself opened up in a way that I have not yet experienced. I cry a lot.
I cry a lot but not in a sad way. It’s in some kind of beautiful life way.
I saw one of my closest friends at the store the other day. It has been about 3 weeks since I have seen her….and when I saw her face I just started crying. We hugged and I just couldn’t help but cry. I’m not even sad.
I heard the song ‘Waiting for my real life to begin’ by Colin Hay on the radio yesterday on my way into work. Tears…tears…and a peace.
In the song he says “Any minute now…my ship is coming in.” If you have not heard it please listen.
I strongly felt after listening to it…I am done waiting for my real life to begin.
My real life is now. It is here and it is filled with grace and love and friends and struggles and deaths and dreams and 10 million other things that can happen in a moment.
Its here. I’m here.
