Grief, Stories, Writing

“What do you do with that?” – Memoir Update

“What do you do when the waves of finality wash over you and cover you in a different reality? Can one single moment define your entire life? A life is made up of a series of events, some happy, some sad, some magic, and some tragic. The tragic moments, the events filled with trauma, pain, and loss irrevocably change us forever. There is no going back from these events. We are undeniably not the same as we were before, so the question remains,— what do you do with that?” ©Mark Wayne

More than ORDINARY!

It saddens me to think that Robin Williams believed he had no other options. That fame and fortune are often not enough.

It saddens me to think of those closest to him that he left behind.  Family and friends who loved and cared for him.

It saddens me to think of all the people who cross our paths every single day who also believe they have no other options.

There has never ever been an ordinary person born on this planet.  We are each bestowed with a divine potential that the world so easily robs us of.

So many people without the notoriety of the rich and famous make this same choice everday. And do we care?

We were all meant for so much more than ORDINARY but often settle for so much less.
