Sailing in the Wind- By Charlene

It is in those moments that we truly live in, those moments that we truly breathe in that bring life to us. It is where your spirit forever remains. Those moments where your heart opens up and you feel more alive than you have ever been. Life is when we are dreaming and there are moments when we awaken and realize that we are truly living. That is where we will always be.

My spirit is in the sunset. Traveling down an empty highway on a summer evening. The radio is playing. My hand is out the window and my fingers are twirling the wind. The sky is turquoise and gold with signatures of fiery red from the blazing sun. It follows me wherever I go, lingering in between every tree that passes me. The sun sends me love notes before the somber moon takes it's place. I throw my head back and I open up my arms. I feel the release in me. The wind flows upon every ounce of me and I let the cleansing air settle into my soul, releasing every bounds that drag me and blowing away the heavy chains wrapped around me. My soul is free. I am alive once again.

I have resurrected from the darkness. I trusted him with all of me and I loved him with every breath I took. He trampled over me and buried me beneath the dark soil and left me forgotten and worthless. Finally I will rise and I will take the life that is rightfully mine. Once again I shall call it my own.

My heart is like a butterfly thriving in the sun. Fragile and untouched, I will turn into dust in your hands. Heartache has blinded me for so long. I couldn't see the light in the sky. The glorious sun greets an old friend with warm kisses on my cheek. The leaves dance for joy in the flowing wind. Too long have I forgotten the colors in the sky.

Like a bird, I wanna fly high above. Sailing in the wind. I am free. At last, I am

Being Alive- By Charlene

I have traveled down a road and looking back, I cannot believe I have come this far. I never thought I would be the one who walked away from the one I loved very deeply. I never thought that my life's passion would be in being a mother. I never thought I'd be living in a city all on my own and standing here today where I am.

In my life's lessons, I have learned that the hardest thing to do is the right thing. Letting go of a dream to find another. I learned that we all need to take care of ourselves and that the greatest people are the ones who can care for others more than themselves.

I have learned that we cannot rely on others or ourselves to get through life's problems. We all need to rely on God because he cares. How blessed are we to have a God who is not unforgiving and selfish! How blessed are we to have a God who is so merciful and kind! The lord is truly mighty. He never leaves our side even if we turn our backs to him. He has brought me this far and he will lead me safely home.

I was driving down a road on a beautiful evening. The sun was setting and the world was aglow. The wind was twirling the leaves and the sky was red and gold. I breathed in the air. Free. I felt so free and alive. Life was like a song. It is moments like these that I live for.

Just to wake up next to a sleeping baby that I call my own. To have a beautiful boy come and jump in my bed every morning. To know they are mine. I am forever devoted to them and because of them, I am forever complete.

Life is quite a journey. It is a road that takes you to many places you never thought you would be. I have learned that it is pointless to make plans in life, because life already has a plan for you.

and the meaning of life is just to live. It is a gift from God for us to enjoy every sunrise and sunset, to love someone more than we love ourselves, to give and recieve, and every thing imaginable on this Earth.

I am glad to be alive.

The Author's Introduction

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Charlene. I am a single mom to two beautiful boys, Landon and Brady. They are my life's devotion and the very passion of my heart. I am in college pursuing a bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies so I can teach deaf students. I feel that I can reach them on a personal level since I was one of them once before, and I hope to inspire them to dream and to achieve.

My passion is in being a mother, to dance and to write. I also enjoy going out to resturants, to travel and shop of course! What woman doesn't? :) This blog is my own personal diary where I can write down my expressions, my inspirations and my stories. I do enjoy to ramble! :)

Love, Charlene <3
