Every moment is a struggle. Every moment is a reward. Every moment is actually, both. It depends on the perspective. I live with both guiding my way. The struggle pushes me to do better and the reward caters to selfish needs that I acknowledge. And, these are not thoughts that dominate my actions, but an understanding that is engrained, accepted, and utilized, vigilant and adapting to circumstances, ever watchful.
I have found that the tangibility of my actions materializes through my passion for life. Hope and the relentless pursuit for quality drive me forward. Of course, I face setbacks, but I endure and continue onward. The most important part of moving forward is being aware. I look through my rearview mirror and side mirrors every once in a while. If I need extra reassurance I turn my head or make a concerted effort to look behind me and make sure I can continue doing what I’m doing. Checks and balances … Renewal and Thanksgiving.
Through my passion and conviction for life I give thanks for every moment. That includes the good and the not-so-good. Exclusion is only a betrayal to the soul. Don’t deny the bad stuff. Therefore, learning from every experience becomes wisdom for the future. Sometimes, it is really, really, tough, but don’t give up. I won’t. You’d better not, either.
In fact, I’m sharing my conviction through my latest video post. I realize this music will not cater to all, but my expression is clear. I’m giving my all. I’m giving thanks to all. I always feel like I’m radiating energy when I belt out “Biggest Part of Me” and I’m sending out the positive vibes to reinforce a holiday that is actually a daily celebration.
"Biggest Part of Me" is a song by American soft rock band Ambrosia, from the album One Eighty. Released as a single in 1980, the song reached #3 on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts. The song was written by band member David Pack.
