The Other Side

I find that it’s important for me to allow myself whatever feelings are coming my way. I have experienced enough growth to know that whatever is going on for me is part of the life experience; that I can learn from it. Since I have expressed my feelings of sadness and fear ( Self-Discovery ), I have come to the other side and into the joy and love.

I am joyful that I have a community of people who are willing to listen to me. I am joyful that I have a strong and loving wife that embraces all of who I am.  I am joyful that they don’t try to fix things and allow me to be in whatever space it is I am in. I am joyful that they push me and challenge me into finding new ways of looking at old stories. I want to say that it’s unconditional love and my belief is that if it’s love, it’s unconditional by default – isn’t all true love unconditional?

I walk this journey of life with my experiences. There is nothing that I can do, outside of finding a parallel universe, to change what I have been through. I have so much joy in knowing that I have come to a place in my life where I can embrace all of who I am (and was).

With the birth of my son, I have been offered the opportunity to view life differently; from the perspective of a teacher. He will watch me. He will learn from me. If I get my way, I’ll share with him that life is full and worth living that way. I will teach him to embrace all of who he is. I will teach him to love everyone and everything for they all have something to share with us. If I get my way, I’ll love him each and every single day, hour, and minute of my life.

Father and son
