A New Journey!


“One moment she was alone and lost… and 4 years later she emerges, anew.”

I have decided to take a different path with my blogs.  I have healed and moved on from my very painful relationship.  My blogging helped me to move on.  Sharing my raw feelings helped me deal with life.  Not that I won’t stumble… I am only human:)  But life, my life has moved on.

After everything I have been through I look at myself as a tight rope walker.  Because the tight rope walker is the one who doesn’t need a safety net.  He can move on with his life without someone in it.  And that is just what I did.  My faith is all that I needed and need to keep moving forward.

I love to write about my discoveries, whether they be about life or the many trails that I happen upon and learn from.

I am fortunate enough to live in a state that allows me to hike all year round.  The desert is beautiful in it’s own right.  You just have to see it and sometimes look for it.  I get to see this mountain everyday.  I have hiked to the top and all through it.  And just yesterday, I discovered by accident a new trail behind this amazing, majestic mountain.  You never know what you are going to find, on the trail or in life.  It is how you look at it that makes the difference.  I choose to see the beauty in what is in front of me.  To some, they will only see ugly, prickly cactus and a ground full of dirt and sand.  But when you open your eyes, and I mean really open your eyes… You see so much more.

That is how I view life.  My eyes are wide open and I choose to enjoy the moments put in front of me and see the desert in all of it finery as a gift from God.

So I challenge you… open your eyes and see, really see, what is in front of you.

The peace and joy I get from wandering these desert trails only remind me of how grateful I am to be alive, to enjoy the trails I have been on, and the many more I will explore!

Enjoy my view below:)

As always…. Keep Hiking to the Top,

What Inspires You?

An inspiration can come from a person, a quote, a movie, a book; the list goes on.  The littlest thing can inspire us.  It doesn’t even have to have words.  A picture can inspire me.

Who inspires you?  What inspires you?  Or are you in search of some inspiration; of any kind?

Inspiration should make us think about where we are, who we are, and how to reach the top.  We want that firecracker feeling inside where anything is possible; even in our darkest moments.  When we make decisions about our life, change is about to take place. 

Many things inspire me; the word of God, certain people, poetry, or a picture that I took that just made me feel good inside. 

I know when I was deep in the throws of my pain and healing, I looked for inspiration wherever I could find it; anything to get me to take the next step.  That is when I began blogging.  My words were helping me heal as I was inspiring others to do the same. 

Think about the inspirations in your life; find them, thank them, write it down.   

I would like to share with you a few blogs that have inspired me.  I read many, but these stand out.  Take a look.  Listen to what they have to say.  Their words continue to inspire me as I keep hiking to the top! (theweatheredlife.com, candycoatedreality.com, and Godmatters.com)

I’ll see you there!
