I Am A Work in Progress

Please pardon my appearance and my behavior (or lack thereof), I am a work in progress. Please accept and enjoy me as I am while celebrating the process of my becoming all that is possible for me. Please join me in this process of re-creating myself every day in every way. Your contribution to my growing and becoming is always welcome.

As much as a paradox as it may seem, I am, and have always been whole and complete while forever remaining a work in progress. How is this possible? It is possible because there's nothing right or wrong in the universe, there is only what is.

If You Never Cried

 Did you ever experience something so inspiring you wanted to share it with the whole world?

Did you ever, in one moment, experience all the sorrows of mankind?
Did you ever hold on to a dream that never came true?
Did you finally learn to love yourself with the same depth of love you know it's possible for the world?
Did you ever cry from the sheer joy of just being alive?
If given the chance, would you live your life again, just as it was and just as it was not?
Did you ever want to hold the whole world in your hand?
Did you ever cry until you laughed?

If you had never laughed or cried, how then would your soul know that you have been alive?
