Do you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to?
Do you know?
~From The Theme from Mahogany, written by Michael Masser & Gerald Goffin
We’re bombarded with a multitude of things in any given day, you and I. World news, state and local news, job-related interactions with coworkers, the needs of friends and family. There’s the constant deluge from social media; Facebook and Twitter updates, blog posts; information received via radio, television, and the telephone.
Yes, all of that is a lot. An awful lot. We have to sift through it, use some and discard the rest. If you’re like me, you try to take the good and leave the bad alone. I don’t like clogging up my mind or my spirit with a lot of negativity or otherwise soul crushing things. Quite enough of that coming from life itself, without me deliberately ingesting it.
My plan is to become much more diligent about what I allow my eyes to see, and what I bother to read. I have a natural curiosity, and I love reading and learning new things, yet it’s time to become much more discriminating. Time is precious, and I want to spend it soaking up the good stuff – those things that will encourage, uplift and inspire me
not tick me off.
As I move into this next week, I’m determined to focus on where I’m going and what I’m doing. I like what life is showing me – those things that I’m able to accomplish with the help of God and by His grace. I know where I’m going, yet I’m open to the surprises that I know will pop up along the way.
I know where I’m going to – and I’m enjoying the trip.

I can readily relate to the profound changes brought on by a miscarriage. You’re more in tune with yourself and your surroundings, and your intuition sharper. The pain causes you to feel more deeply than your ever thought possible – and you’re so right, you value the things in life and people who matter so much more. Even with the loss you’re more acutely aware of your blessings. So many paradoxes!
BE happy, because God has blessed you with a good life and a wonderful man who loves and adores you.
I try to think about what I’m thinking. Since my miscarriage something has changed in me, it was profound experience and although my hubby and I want to try again. My perspective on what I see, do, open myself to, allow in my life has gotten even more vigilant. I never negativity anyway but I’m disassociating more and more everyday with the negative. I used to try to argue, now I just don’t care. I have an opinion, others have them and we’ll all just move on. I try to honor my relationships more, they are so important to me now more than ever. I definitely honor myself more, stopped Fer,ing guilty for being happy, peaceful, blessed and satisfied and no more trying to make excuses to others for why I deserve this, I just do. It’s been going well, brought me a lot more peace. Blessings in your journey, I know you’re feeling the positive affects even as we speak.
