I'm in a good place in my life I think. I've always been in a good place in my life no matter how steep the impending climb. I just didn't know it when I was too mired in a victim mentality or limited and negative thinking to see. When I finally understood how I was creating, life changed for me. I walk in the same world as always I have but its different now. It's different because I have changed and transformed through understanding, learning and even pain. For every tear I have cried, Lord thank you. For every dream denied, I thank you. For every single thing I thought I had lost, immense gratitude have I for in the losing, I have found much I didn't expect and it is by far more than ever I could have dreamed.
A lone hawk soars high above the Earth. I envy her a moment for her freedom and stand there transfixed as the last rays of diffused light begin to quickly fade. I sigh a little as she flaps her wings and I lose sight of her. I turn and face the city again and take my place here consciously within it. One more deep breath and I smile at the sky for no reason, for every reason.
