Once Upon A Time…

Once Upon A Time...


Once upon a time…

I thought my love  would never change. I thought my career would last till I quit. I thought my life would bring me no sudden surprises. I thought my world could easily be controlled.

Once upon a time…

I had a love that did not know how to love me. I had a career that had a direction I no longer wanted. I had a life that had so many surprises I could not recognize the norm. My world had a mind of its own and spun out of control.

Once upon a time…

I wanted a love that would grow and always understand me. I wanted a career that I was sure of and it was right for me. I wanted a life that had surprises that I could plan for. I wanted a world that I at least knew up from down.


I’ve accepted a love that has taught me more about love. I have accepted a career that leads me to adventures never dreamed of. I’ve accepted that life is full of wonderful experiences, trying lessons and growth affording trials. I’ve accepted that my world is not for the controlling but for journeying and exploring and there is no up or down. I have accepted that my only movement is…FORWARD.

Peace & Light

About Caroll Atkins

Loving Designing Living!! All forms of design intrigue me. As a graphic designer, I design for my livelihood (C.A.SlyDesigns) but as a writer, I do it for my living! At this time in my life, I MUST write. LoveDesignLife, is my joy and my gift to you. If my articles resonate with you, I pray they will also help you in life much as living them and writing about them has helped me. Today, it is no longer about thinking outside of the box. It’s bigger!! It is all about “Transcending the sphere!” coined by yours truly. I work hard to accomplish my goals. However, if I ever fall short I don’t worry I just eat cake cause tomorrow is another day!!
