Friendship is sacred: Cherish it.

"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions or cures, we've chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief or bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares."-Henri J.M. Nouwen

Friends are a neccessity when we make the choice to travel down a road of unfamiliarity, they're there to let us know that we haven't lost our way. I'm so thankful that my friends are supportive of me, and my decision to follow this path. I hope they know I love them all uncondionally.

*  Above I posted a  link  to  the  song called "Best of Joy" By: Michael Jackson. I dedicate this song to everyone of you.. Thank you all for encouraging me though all  of this!

Seeking my truth:

"The pursuit of truth shall set you free-even if you never catch up with it" -Clarence Darrow

Our truth is something that's not always easily found. In fact, nine times out of ten, in order to discover THE REAL truth,  we must search long and hard within ourselves. Which isn't easy. It requires opening yourself up to the painful and uncomfortable parts of your life. Digging up the seed that you've kept SAFE under the soil. There's no chance of that little seed growing if you bury it so deep within,it doesn't receive its nourishment from the sun! So I'm inviting you to join me and start seeking YOUR truth! It'll set you FREE.

* I'm going to continue the search for my own truth by going to my 1st counseling session today. Wish me luck!!

One of my favorite quotes:

"In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe."-Michael Jackson.

I wanted to use this as kind of a introduxtion because I think it kind of acts as a guideline for concepts I want to address in my blog. I will start each post with a quote that has impacted or influenced me in some way.  I'm on a journey to find sprituality,  happiness and love. Hopefully as the days go on, and I begin sharing my "Life's Lyrics", I will inspire someone to go on some kind of excursion of their own. To find what it is THEY want out of their lives.

The reason I chose this quote for today is because I think this presents one of life's greatest challenges: Overcoming adversity.

*Michael Jackson is one of my biggest inspirations in life!
