Labor of Love

So much has transpired in our worlds since I last wrote a couple of months ago. Most of us believed we were really seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

I know I did…

Were we ever wrong; I’m digressing.

I’m reminding myself constantly how fortunate I am in so many ways. My family is healthy, happy and prospering thankfully. I am as well, for the most part. All that being said though, these aren’t easy times for so many of us for a vast array of reasons.

The focus becomes one of what we can control instead, what brings us joy and happiness.

Time out in nature.

A swim in a spring-fed pool.

A FaceTime call with family or friends.

Not the news.

Not the politics.

Not acts of God.

The labor of love is one that brings meaning to life, with laughter and knowing the depth of love mutually shared, on so many different levels.

We all have a choice.

I chose love.

It really is the only answer.

For the other path isn’t better, nor will it bring light into our lives.

The labor of love, is one worth all the effort.

On every possible level I can imagine.

Peace, love and much aloha always…Carmen

  3. Carmen, so nice to receive your upbeat note. I too am looking to the future and not looking in the rear. Loving my community and working to give back daily by volunteering quietly. It is rewarding in so many different ways. Have a full plate most days and fall into bed exhausted at night and then sleep like a baby. Doing some traveling on the mainland and looking forward to the freedom to travel anywhere again.
    Stay safe and healthy!

    1. Maureen, you are such a wonderful example of exactly what I hope evolves from this reality we are all living through. Thank you for your kind words and your inspiration too! Yes, road trips are definitely what are on my radar as well for the foreseeable future too. Huge hugs!!
