Trying To Play a Duet By Myself

So I know that most of my posts are funny, and jokey, and witty. But today, on a more serious note I wanted to talk about life. Life is....(insert word that suits your view). Serisously though, life can be a number of things. It's like a song. There are parts of a song that go really well for you. You hit the note, key, whatever, and you just feel fantastic about how your song is going right? Then there are also high parts that initially seem daunting, but when you finally hit them you feel soooo good! And you are quite literally high
(no pun intended) on life!

However, there are also points in a song that are low, and also difficult to manuver through, but have you noticed that it isn't the high notes in a song that make it rich, it is the low ones. Low points give a song, and life, perspective, richness, and meaning. I am so grateful for the low points in my life. I have become a better person and have come to understand and appreciate life because of them. The difficult part is realizing that low points, and high points for that matter, are necessary to fulfil our potential in life.

Another thing about fulfilling our potential in life is that our Heavenly Father did not intend for us to live life alone. He knew that we would not be able to do it. It's like sitting at the piano, staring at a piece of music and someone comes up and says, "Hey, why don't you play that song?" And you want to, you really do, but you can't because it is intended to be a duet, and you can't do a duet by yourself, obviously. So in relation to life, up until the point when we find our companion we are working on our part of the duet; perfecting it and making twigues so that when we find him/her we can blend. My mother always told me that you aren't a good singer until you can learn how to blend. And what a marvelous blessing, and experience it will be when we have to opportunity to blend our lives with another, making a new life, and starting the duet.

So, the point of this post is that while we need to work on our part, we cannot play a duet by ourselves.

I'm just sayin'
