Take a Walk with Me
“Always remember, it’s simply not an adventure worth telling if there aren’t any dragons.” Sarah Ban Breathnach
My life has not been all that simple, full of adventures? Sure! Full of excitement? Of course! Full of inspirational and joyous moments? You bet! Full of laughter? Better believe it! But it has also come with it’s own difficulties, pain, disappointments, heart aches and “dragons.”
Take a walk with me through the turbulent pathways of my life. It is filled with rainbows and sunshine and storms. As Charles Dickens put it in Tale of Two Cities “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” I don’t think there is any area of my life where I can look back and give it one emotion, for all had several at once. There is one thing that I am certain: I never walked it alone.
There has not been one moment when I was alone. There has always been a presence that surrounded me at every turn. One that laughed when I laughed. One that smiled when I smiled. One that shared both my joy and sorrow. One that pushed me towards life when I needed it. One that encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone. One that face palmed when I did stupid things, sometimes head shaking with disbelief. One who would remind me that “I told you not to” and still continued to walk with me, regardless of my stubbornness. One that picked me up when I would fall. The One that held me when I hurt and reminded me I was okay. The One that held my hand in the darkest times and brought me back to the Light, and sometimes to reality. No, I never walked alone.
So take a walk with me… let me share with you my stepping stones and golden trails that make me Uniquely Raqui. At the end, I pray, you too can see that you have not walked alone in your unique life.
