Super Heroes have a way of finding out things.  Some, you may not want them to know.  Why?  Maybe because it’s none of their business or maybe it is, and you chose to ignore this.
I thought the deal was to be transparent with people in your life.  At least the ones you genuinely care for.  Or else why bother having them in your life?  So what happens when you find out that someone hasn’t been straightforward in their dealings involving you?
The choice made next will determine much more down the road than it does in the immediate moment.  It will involve how you SEE this person, yourself, and the values you once held as vital, for many days to come.
It converts your belief from a place of security and knowing, to one filled with doubt and confusion.  It forces you to engage with a new reality-one divided between another’s hypocrisy and the receipt of your own blindness towards it.
So why can I SEE it now?
As with most mass, enough time and pressure will erode even the most impenetrable of armors…leaving nothing further to disclose.

Did anyone ever ask you “what did you learn today?”  If you were like me, it happened when I was younger.  At that time it was just something I did with my parents. Part of our routine.  It didn’t seem significant. And often times, the exchange ended in their dissatisfaction of my answer so it just sucked more.
Over the years we all learn.  On some things faster and other things slower and probably something everyday.  But how often do we miss the real learning opportunities?
We pile up our learning by taking exams.  Thinking that if we just pass enough to get through to the next phase of our lives, we are learned (lur-nid).  When in fact we fail to SEE what our presence here is trying to teach us through life’s true tests.  How does this happen?  How do we lose sight of the meaning in each day?
The manner in which we approach tests, who we become as a result, and how we choose to continue the journey after, proves fateful.
If we were to step back and take a deeper participation, wouldn’t we be happier?  If we logged the human lesson each day and added it to the next, couldn’t it lead to contentment?  Cheezy?  Possibly.
But, could I have finally grasped the key to emancipation?
You would have thought by now,  I’d have learned something.
There’s too many things that I haven’t done yet
There’s too many sunsets I haven’t seen
You can’t waste the day wishing it’d slow down
You would’ve thought by now
I’d have learned something
I made up my mind when I was a young girl
I’ve been given this one world
I won’t worry it away, no
Now and again I lose sight of the good life
I get stuck in a low light
But then love comes in
How far do I have to go to get to you
Many the miles
Many the miles
How far do I have to go to get to you
Many the miles
But send me the miles and I’ll be happy to follow you, love
I do what I can wherever I end up
To keep giving my good love
And spreading it around
‘Cause I’ve had my fair share of take care and goodbyes
I’ve learned how to cry
And I’m better for that
Sing, how

Let’s Go Be Happy

12.  leap of faith, an act or instance of accepting or trusting in something that cannot readily be seen or proved but in your heart is KNOWN…
A simple and profound realization which so many of us consider and too few KNOW to be ours?  I SEE it to be within grasp.  Or maybe I was always holding it…only my grip had loosened on my understanding of it’s concept.  Instead of dwelling on the don’t haves, couldn’t do, will never be, I am ready to embrace myself with unabashed acceptance of who I have become.
 At some point, it comes down to a choice, (which we actually all have), to have trust in the process of our lives.  To trust that when things don’t go our way, life has a plan…even if the one we set forth on, falls through and completely apart. My reaction when things fell apart was the key.  So what does it mean?  Well, basically the difference between being frozen in fear, trapped in a safe, chance-less existence, OR freeing yourself forever, as you stretch to climb to new heights.
New heights of comprehension, humility, gratitude, desire, and will.  Heights which initially could not been foreSEEn. They would have been lost and unknown forever, had it not been for a brave leap of faith to a planet waiting to amaze.  So, what do you say we jump and let’s go be happy?
