Toxic people are everywhere. We read about them in the news, or know them as neighbours or work colleagues. For some of us they are family, which means we are impacted by them badly.
I met someone recently who finds life a challenge. She is retired, successful and enjoys a lifestyle some would envy. When she feels happy – life is great. The rest of the time not so much. The only one thing blocking her are the thoughts she thinks. It struck me that she wasn’t alone, that there are many people who are controlled by their thoughts, and unconsciously accept them without question.
I saw a friend yesterday who gave me a book by Edith Eger called The Choice. It is inspirational, powerful and well worth reading. It got me to thinking that when you break it down, life really is just a series of choices which lead to events which then determine the course of our lives. Sometimes we choose well and get a response that we are happy with. Other times not so much.
The Journey reflects my book On Angel's Wings, which I am in the process of working on. It is the story of me experiencing, surviving and thriving against all odds. The spirit of who I am, that overcame horror to find true happiness. On Angel's Wings tells how my Angel's gave me hope and led me back to grace and love.
