I read an interesting post today at Kim’s and it made me think. Not that it takes much to make me think since I’m notorious for thinking too much but… I suppose I should say that it made me look at myself, my behavior, my life. And I think I have finally realized that life is not all light and it is not all dark – it is many shades of gray – it is many shades of red, green, blue, yellow, black and brown – all colors.
What does this mean? Not sure, really – just that no matter what we think our lives are going to be like. What we want our lives to be like – they find their own course, their own pattern and their own colors. Not because we are getting what we don’t want but because we are getting what we want – perhaps in the strangest way, perhaps in an obvious way. But I do believe that whatever comes, does so for a reason – not Fate’s reason but a reason of our own whether wittingly or unwittingly. We bring to ourselves and our lives whatever we need – to learn, to see, to bear, to own, to have, to be – all that and more.
Knowing this of course, makes it no easier. It only elucidates it ever so slightly for me. But just as it is in a wonderfully bruised sky, there is beauty in all the colors of the dark and the light. Perhaps the trick is to be able to find them.
