“We are the sum of all the moments of our lives”…

… all the experiences (good and bad), all of our actions, our words, our circumstances, our reactions, emotions, etc.  We are the sum of all the moments of our lives…

“Blessed are the hearts that can bend; as theirs will never be broken…”

I feel reconciled today in accepting that the sum of my life changes daily as I add things to it and take some away.  I am reconciled and feel at peace that I am much more than a one-dimensional person.  Quoting ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’: “You have to live spherically, in many directions and never lose your childish enthusiasm and then things will come your way.”

There is divine beauty in learning just as there is human beauty in tolerance.  To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth.  Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps; sometimes daring to create  my own.  The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples.  I am the sum total of their experiences; their quests .  – Elie Weisel

I have added in this recipe of life some of my own special ingredients; but the fact is, we are one.  Alike and different.  We carry one heartbeat in this universe.  Use yours to carry love, forgiveness, tolerance, and acceptance…

All we can do is try to live a life we are proud of, pray we make a difference in someone’s life…and hope that you are blessed to have family and friends that will lift you up and embrace you even when you fall… and never judge another individual because you never know their heart or what they are going through to get to where they are…
