Have you ever looked at someone and wondered, “What’s Your Story?”
I love this question and inwardly think of it when I meet someone …who captures my attention. And I think today I was the cynosure of attention!
I attended an university program where balloons were being given out. So I took two. And I went near a lake, at a rather random stop near the lake, and I released the two balloons at an even more random bridge near that random lake =P ~ There were cars passing by, one motorist waved at me with a big smile, - heck, there was even a cop stationed nearby!!- while I was walking back and forth on that bridge with my two balloons.
And I was thinking, I’m sure these people are wondering, “Random Girl at a Random Bridge with Two Big, Bright Random Balloons, What’s YOUR Story!!??” =D
I don’t know every bit of the HOW yet, but I believe it’ll all work out. :)
Dear God, Most Merciful, Most Compassionate, You know my Fears and my Tears, my Faith and my Joy; You know the Desires of my Heart. I submit to Your Will, willingly :) ~ And I love You very, very much. Thank You, Allah (swt), for everything that You do.
May I continue to practice my Faith at every opportunity that I get.. [at every second of my abundantly blessed life].
Here’s a late afternoon musing…
I’ll call him my SunFlower. I had asked him once, what did he like the best about me? He answered, “… that you care about me so much!”
I never dared to ask, in our time together, whether he loved me or not. Intuitively I felt he did, but didn’t dare to seek confirmation in case I had to face rejection. So, instead, in typical LeapGirl style, I’d write about “us” on Facebook… :)
Much much later, — I believe while we were making the transition to “no more” and after I had deleted him from my friends’ list, — SunFlower told me, the only reason he’d come on the social media site was to read about “us” through my statuses… ~
No, it’s not the desire to be different, or special, or even outstanding that keeps me going: It’s the desire to be alive to the fullest, to live life in every possible hue & color available to me at any given moment, to be BRIMMING WITH LIFE!,, — with joy, with happiness, with blessings, — that propels me forward.
And if that makes me any different, special, or outstanding, then [I humbly desire] so be it! =)
Haha…this was perfectly apt for me today. You see, I have half-smashed my phone’s screen, and not for the first time either. This especially hurt, since this was a new replacement, after a previous worse incident. [I am getting mad at myself even as I type this!]
But hey, Leap Girl, laugh! The swirls on this phone do look funky, and it is foolish to drop your phone so many times. So do laugh, life’s a Lucille Ball comedy, especially when it comes to your telecommunication devices! ;)
Even the streetlights couldn’t dim the night’s beauty tonight…
‘Night ‘Night World… =)
Thanks to the Lord Almighty, I’ve been riding the wave of momentum lately. It’s in a certain, specific aspect of my life… which, of course, spills over and creates productivity in other areas. At the same time, tonight, I received some news for which prayers for recovery [from some negative situations] are being needed.
That made me think: I know I’ll be hitting a roadblock sooner than later. I may fall victim to mental lethargy, which in turn will affect this external momentum. An outside circumstance can also play villain to this internal excitement. Or a mix of both, perhaps.
And that’s where something I’ve been taught this year comes in handy: Keep Going. Don’t Stop. No. Matter. What.
It IS worth it. And it is crucial. It’s the right thing to do, and it’s the only known sane, logical thing to do if I’m going to replicate and [exponentiate] this current success.
