Stages of Life

Isn’t it strange how we go through different stages in our lives? From beginning to end and it seems to in some ways to loop around and come full circle. We start off tiny, sure, and needing help and learning. We end up often times, not so tiny, but needing help. At both the infant stage and elderly stage we can need help because our bodies are unable to move as we would like. The aging process can take so much, but we get so much through the process of aging and living.

We like to think we know what we want out of life, but most of us truly don’t, it’s why we don’t always get what we want. The universe is willing to play along as far as the law of attraction goes, but there is more at play, like what we want, need, and should be doing with our lives. I think there are things we all need to do or influence somehow, as for the rest it is up to us, but I do feel like we have the equivalent of checkpoints in our lives and we will be directed to those by whatever means necessary it is up to us if we take a long way or short way. As for what we want, few of us know what that is and are wholeheartedly sure and have an unwavering need or desire for it, and that is what the law of attraction takes. You can’t keep changing your mind and expect results. You need to be honest about what is you want from something, is it notoriety, fame, fortune, or a byproduct of one of those things?

As for the stages in our lives, our wants and needs typically change over time. Few things stay the course. My love of chocolate has stayed the course of my life, despite that even our tastebuds go through changes. My love for my children is constant and will remain so. The career I had is no longer the career I want if I am being honest I do not know what I want, I’m not sure the job I work matters all that much to me. I believe it is more important for me to have stability, peace, and the more simple things, they have more value to me than a giant bank account, though I could have those things as a byproduct or could I, only the universe knows truly.

We go through many phases in life. One constant is that we are always learning. We change by the experiences we have, it shapes up, changing the way we think, our perspectives, it directly changes how we behave and interact with others. The truth of the matter is that we don’t all changed for the better. We don’t necessarily change in terms of better or worse maybe even just different. This is one of the biggest contributing factors of why people grow closer together or further apart in their relationships, romantic and plutonic and everything in between. While it is hard to not take those changes personally, it rarely ever is. People who were on the same track may find themselves diverging into different directions. Some things in life remain the same regarding how everchanging the world is. The cycle continues for our children, the high school heartthrob, the rebels, the pavers of way, the shy girls. The awkward phases, the best years of their lives still on the horizon, and some of them will be right where you are in your life right now having lived, having more left to live, and looking back in reflection.

I was born and raised in the smallest of towns in Southwest Virginia. A town that is extraordinarily active, yet a town that is like it's very own little mini Bible belt. My dad was Baptist, my mom pentecostal, and I'm paranormal. I would venture to say it is somewhat of a family trait. One that is met with equal acceptance and curiosity as much as it is met with skepticism. Individually and collectively so much has been experienced and witnessed at times to such a degree that one might wonder how on earth there is room for doubt. I dont have all the answers, I do not have it all figured out. Im as human as everyone else relying heavily many mornings on a lot of coffee and a little Jesus. In fact, I can't decide what I want for dinner most days. One constant is I cannot go a single day without chocolate. Pour a cup of coffee, or a little tea and whiskey and join me in my confessions of a haunted freak.
