I've thought a lot about what my final post would be. I wanted it to be my own words, however, I find this quote touching my soul, and perfectly fitting. I found it in a dream.
Wherever I am, I shall fill it with joy, and with the love of who I am. In that, I will fill the space with my soul. I can only hope that others will find joy in that space where my soul is.
I have come to understand that it is not my soul work to force the happiness and joy in others. I can only put my love in a space, and offer it to others to share; in time, in moments, in memories, and of course, in gratitude. My hope is for those to whom I have offered my space, they feel my soul, and are, even if in some small way, comforted and know love. I will have faith they will return to the space where my soul is once more.
There are spaces where my soul flows freely. In the laughter of children, in hands I have held, in tears I have dried, in burdens I have carried to ease pain, I have stood. There are soul friends I have chosen, kindred spirits my soul longs for. My gratitude for the spaces we share shall never be bound by Earthly limitations. And when I stand in a place, no longer on this plane, my soul shall dance with them for eternity.
Live in gratitude, seek peace and brotherhood. Practice kindness. Above all else...
Love, love, love.
