Never say Never...or...No Creo En El Jamas
Many of you who know me...know that a couple of years ago I got a tattoo emblazoned on my arm...it reads...No Creo En El Jamas. Which in translation is kinda like NEVER say NEVER...its means that I don't believe in the impossible...That nothing can NOT be acheived. It is also the title of a Juanes song that is about that struggle of a man clinging to life and perservering through it with the support of his family and his faith in God...it says that when you feel at your lowest you put your undying love and faith in God and you will get through anything. It was kinda unbeliveable the way I first heard this song..I was on my way to donate and it came on...I had just for a brief second left the hospital where my dad lay in a coma. I started immediatley crying like crazy hearing these beautiful words booming out of the radio speakers...I still get tingles when I listen to this song and how much it related to my life at that very second. Right then I decided that these words belonged forever on my arm for me to remember that very moment that would change me forever... So that is how my tattoo came to be...but the irony lies in how much truer these words would continue to play in my life for the rest of that year. Never say never I say....because those of you who say Never...might just get some surprises. I have heard..."I would NEVER do this...or I would NEVER do that" So many women I have heard say "I would NEVER get a divorce...NEVER...we have a perfect marriage" when infact maybe their heart secretly aches a little everytime they make this extreme declaration. "Are you CRAZY..she says...I would NEVER have more kids."....and freinds tell eachother "I would NEVER leave your side." Well...the truth is no one should ever say never.....because that never might just become your right now.
I married my best friend in 2000...and yes I know...I know...marrying your best friend should be a good thing...infact....a great thing. However, this best friend of mine was literally my best friend....sure I LOVED him...I still DO....infact I love him today the very same way I did on that January afternoon I walked down that beautiful aisle wearing that Beautiful dress and witnessed by all our loved ones. But ....it was destined that we would be AMAZING parents together and not the loves of each others lives. I was not that woman that said NEVER to divorce....but I said ALWAYS for doing and following the path that was paved for me. I didn't ponder that NEVER...I definitly did NOT ponder that "Oh my God...what will people think?" or "I'm scared"....what I did do was give myself what I pray my kids will do for themselves ALWAYS and that is to EMBRACE HAPPINESS...whatever way, shape or form....Dear Lord I pray my kids will be as happy in their lives as they are today...blessed with 3 parents that love them intensly and unconditionally.
So this "motto" of mine has sure lead me down an interesting road.....I found him....the love of my life...and he not only found me...but he found us all.
*PLEASE.....take a moment to read and absorb every single word.....hopefully it will move you to tattoo it on yourself as well.....OR NOT?
