A journey is defined as travel or passage from one place to another.
Hence, figuratively, a passage through life. My journey through Coffee World has been just that ... a passage through life with many stops and sights along the way, some good, some bad. One can not expect to go through a journey, whatever it may be, without bumps along the road ... a flat tire ... pit stops to take a coffee break. I have had my share of bumps, of flat tires or disappointing moments and even pit stops in which I have both reflected and grown.

I'll be the first to admit that not all pit stops have resulted in reflection but all, in their ways, have resulted in my growth. I believe that growth occurs no matter the appearance in which it is presented: happy moments, times of grief, floods of tears. They have all had their hand in making the person that sits now to write and reflect. Many of my reflections are ramblings or ravings... endless streams of words that allow me to sort out the jumble of emotions that comes with me sitting still long enough to remember. I find it painful to reflect too long so it all comes out in a rush of thoughts, some unable to unscramble at the present moment. But getting them out, in their own way, also allows me to grow.

The girl that you see presented before you now, with all these different levels and emotions, confused at times, sensual at others ... all of it is real ... all of it is the girl that sits on the other side of the keyboard. It's not all just a fantasy but a re-enactment of that part of me that yearns to live, to continue on this journey. Where I will wind up, unwind and have my coffee

The most recent Batman movie has a line in it..which Michael Caine delivers, to the young boy who grows up to become batman..The line is, "Do you know why we fall down Master Bruce? ... so we can learn to pick ourselves up"....

Keep picking yourself up..doing so, has made you that strong confident woman.

Very well stated. With all the bumps and flat tires, sometimes I wonder how any survive. You are correct, as you know, we do grow; What does not kill us, will only serve to make us stronger.

I enjoy your posts when ever time allows.

Thanks for sharing, and the great start for my morning.

hey CnC I liked how you put your reflections its so wonderful to be able to convey feelings for others dontcha think. I've always felt that we move from room to room on our journey, its just the hallways that are a motherfucker. but regardless of the situations I go through once they're over they become memories some good some bad, as long as I learn the lesson from the experience the first time around I dont have to repeat it.

You speak of memories. Years ago I heard someone say, " Memories are a paradise from which we need never depart." But thoughts of the past can be desireable or something to be avoided. Wisdom teaches us to live for the present,prepare for the future and keep the pleasant memories,(i.e.,thoughts of lost loved ones.)

Who we are is where we have been and what we have done. The self is the essence of our life experience. We all have choices. Those choices make us our own individual self, unique in all of our perfection. Yes, we are all perfect - because we are one of a kind. Sure, we may share experience with one, or two or a million people, but the way we intergrate that experience with the rest of our experiences differentiates each individual from the others.

Only thoughtful people are capable of ramblings and ravings.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

He who learns but does not think, is lost. He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.

If you look into your own heart, and you find nothing wrong there, what is there to worry about? What is there to fear?

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.
