Yesterday was my birthday. Forty seven years ago on August 31, I arrived in this world. And, just for the occasion, the Universe bestowed upon me for my enjoyment, a bubble gum sunrise, not unlike the photo above.
PINK. My life is a series of shades of pink. Whether I am celebrating a birthday with my loved ones; driving on my way to work; anticipating an event coming up…….. it always comes up pink. I find myself standing at the sink, putting away dishes in the morning, and a smile comes across my face.
That is a pink moment as well.
Life is a series of shades of pink, my life at least. This is because every moment, every minute, every single event in my life is purposeful and good. Even the bad stuff. Even the painful stuff. Oh, how much insight and reflection and knowledge even those bad moments have brought to me.
On my anniversary of my birth, so many messages of love, kindness and generosity were bestowed upon me. I felt such a strong bond of love and human connection that it almost overwhelmed me. To know that I have touched that many lives, persons that now want to share joy with me, is a gift, an amazing thing to witness.
I was right all along; we are all connected; we all need one another. I was right all along that this life is, indeed, Ubuntu.
For, I am because you are. And, oh, how grateful I am for that.
