I'll be there for you....

I am saddened by the passing of Mathew Perry. A man I only know by the skits he did on friends. I knew he was struggling when the reunion show happened. It was obvious, he was an addict. And that hit me hard. Here is someone with all the money in the world, fame and accolades and he could not kick the addiction. 15 times in rehab. 9 million spent on getting help. And he died alone in a hot tub. In the end, no matter how many people surround you, it's all you in this life. It's your path, your walk and yours alone. You have to do the work, you have to be the one to take hold of your life. No one can do it for you. I'll be there for you takes you only so far. Sometimes I feel the loneliness of this path. The weight of me and me alone gets heavy. And I would consider myself blessed to be surrounded by beautiful people in my life. But at the end of the day, it's just me and the thoughts in my own head. Addiction is a difficult thing that grips hold of a person. And its ugly for everyone involved. Mathew Perry's ex fiance said it best when she said "it was complicated". I pray for his peace and for those that were left behind wondering "what more could I have done". And the answer to this lonely walk, embrace who you are, learn to love yourself and believe that your life has purposes and meaning meant only for you. Be only in the moment in front of you for all too quickly, it passes. Believe in a God that loves you beyond belief and walks with you in all of your moments and is the only one that can truly say "I'll be there for you" Hey, No one told life was going to be this way.....

Change is inevitable....

Like the passing hours, the movement thru seasons and the paying of taxes......change is inevitable. And we fight it every step of the way. Why is that? We so often live in our memories of the p
