“Most of us take our life on this planet for granted. When something drastic happens, it forces us to re-evaluate the reason we are here and why we do what we do. Calamities, illness and death are the greatest teachers and awakeners. They shake us up and take us out of our comfort zone and illusion of separation. Our struggles and hardships give us opportunities to grow and realize that life is a temporary gift for us to cherish, and be grateful for. Unfortunately, because we are slow in learning this lesson, existence throws more challenges our way to help us wake up and re-evaluate the way we live our life. The ups and downs of life teach us that anything can happen at any moment, so we can’t take things, people, our health, or life for granted. We must remember that our life here is an opportunity to learn, discover our gifts and talents, and contribute what we can to make this planet a better place for everyone.”

 I did not write the words above – but they are a fitting commentary to both 2013 and 2014. I am sad that the KIOS blog-a-thon is over, but for now, shall continue to look for inspiration to keep writing. Wishing a gentle 2014 to all.

    The KIOS blog-a-thon was a lot of fun. Quite different from other blog-a-thons and challenges I’ve participated in. I enjoyed getting to know you during KIOS, and will be back here often to visit.

    Same here, Penny. There are a few blogs I’ve added to my “watch & read” list and yours is among them.

    I had never been part of a Blog-a-thon before and it has been quite an experience. I am glad you chose to continue to share even though I know such personal things can be difficult and you may want to just wrap yourself in a cocoon. Sending you the most positive energy I can and I will continue to check in to see how things are going. Hang in there!

    Thank you, Janet. That was my first blog-a-thon too and I did enjoy it, circumstances notwithstanding. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
