“The most confused we ever get is when we try to convince our heads of something our hearts know is a lie.” – Karen Moning
I could write pages and pages about how this quote applies to all aspects of my life but I think it’s a prettier quote solo without my life thrown in the loop. But, do me a favor, REALLY read this quote. I think this quote applies to decisions we all make every day: professionally, emotionally, romantically, and I find it IMPERATIVE to know the difference between what you think you want and what you think you may need to fill a void inside of you, and what you feel is right. It’s cheesy, but also a great song by Roxette, “Listen to your heart.” (Also linked below because it is an AMAZING song!)
“You are a piece of the puzzle of someone else’s life. You may never know where you fit, but others will fill the holes in their lives with pieces of you.” – Bonnie Arbor
Every time I meet someone new I try to walk away from that meeting thinking how they fit into my life, what they taught me and how I can take them with me moving forward. Sometime’s I don’t even have to think about it, I can feel it. That may sound crazy but it’s hard to explain the feeling when something takes you over like that. It’s like I feel them filling that piece of my heart and of my soul, I feel their puzzle piece fit right into place. It’s an AWESOME feeling.
It happened just last night. I hung out with a neighbor I’d never sat and really talked with before and it was EXACTLY what I needed. No need to explain where he fits nor what he has taught me (so far) but just wanted to share that it happens from the people you least expect, at the times you least expect them and at what you don’t even know is the EXACT right time 🙂 Thank you to EVERYONE I’ve ever met (even though you won’t all read this) for being pieces of my puzzle. I look forward to the end of my days when my puzzle is finally complete. I wonder what it will look like? Hopefully it will look like a combination of peace, love, accomplishment, respect, appreciate and fulfillment I don’t want to leave one piece of my puzzle behind so I plan on appreciating all of my encounters in this game of life! It excited me to think that I am the piece of so many puzzles all around this world.

But that’s all right.
When you set out on a journey and night covers the road, you don’t conclude the road has vanished.
And how else could we discover the stars?” – Nancy Willard
