Life is…


The truth is you don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed. – Eminem

This isn’t new to me… but at the very same time it is. 

A few things have happened this week that have left me sitting there literally with my mouth hung open! Be it things friends posted on facebook, things people told me in person, things I saw. These things all reminded me of that one simple fact. Life is an ever changing ride and you never know what is gonna be around the corner. 

Most all these things were good things. Just things I never would have expected. 

There are many things you plan in life. Things you expect to happen. You think you even know how someone else you hardly know is gonna live their life. Then that turn happens and suddenly you are reminded. Nothing in life is expected.  

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. – Joseph Campbell

Even as I type this I am at a loss for words other than to say it again. 

Life is surprising. 

I sit here thinking of all those things again. Thinking about things that may come. Then I tell myself not to plan for things to come because life will make it what it needs to be not what I want it to be. Obviously some things can be planned. However, somethings are best left to let life take you there! 

Life is 10 percent what you make it, and 90 percent how you take it. – Irving Berlin

So take it with joy and be ready for every one of those surprising turns. They could take you to a place even greater than your straight road! Even if the road starts out bumpy. 

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” – Jeremiah 29:11
