At this time of year we will see many instances of reflection. The year in review, this year’s best, this year’s worst, etc etc etc.
Well I want to take this moment to reflect in another way.
A while back I had a conversation with someone who doesn’t believe in reincarnation and her argument was “why would you want to come back?”.
My argument was “Why wouldn’t you?”.
It doesn’t matter if you believe in reincarnation or not.. that’s not what this post is about .. what it IS about is finding reasons to live life all over again.
Some of my reasons for wanting to live life all over again:
Falling in love all over again
Giving birth to my children, holding them in my arms all over again
The excitement and wonder of Christmas
Jumping in that huge pile of leaves that took you all day to rake up
Giggles and laughter
Moments spent with friends
Talking all night on the phone
The first kiss
Making a difference in someone’s life for the better
Feeling that first kick
Singing in the car, not caring who sees
Sunsets and sunrises
Summers first rain
Winters first snow
Trick or Treat
Wondering how the Easter Bunny got into the house to hide your eggs
Swinging as high as you can swing
Spinning in circles til you fall down
Cuddles with the one you love
Baby’s first words, steps
A cuddle by the fire
Hot soup on a cold winter’s day
This list goes on forever ………
Do you see? There is so much you would miss if not ever born.. why wouldn’t you want to do it over and over again?
No matter what you believe .. no matter how hard the road has been ..
there is reason to live!
