This week I had the privilege of attending the Canadian Mental Health Association’s #b4stage4 conference in Victoria BC.
It can seem like our lives are filled with busyness, noise, distractions, and often meaningless activities.
What if we could filter out all that noise, and focus on the meaningful?

The train wreck is over and it really doesn't matter
Just sift through the wreckage for what didn't shatter
You will find baggage some good and some bad
Hang on the the good reflect on the sad
Come up with the lessons they're there for a reason
Use them again in a different season
Carry it through until you can use it again
That lesson of life you learned in the end
For always there will be an end and beginning
