The road that never ends

Decided to Re-blog this one I wrote a while back. 🙂

From the beginning, we are made to endure. We are nestled in our mother’s womb, peaceful and unobservant. We begin to recognize what we need to do to make our world a happier place. We begin the road that never ends.

We are born into an air of confusion. Noises and activity surround us everywhere. We are keen to what gets us attention. We continue on the road that never ends.

As we grow older, out brain is feed with information we have to learn to process, or we will continue to exist. We develop ways to stay alive and survive, not wanting to face the alternative. So, we continue on the road that never ends.

There are days that I wish to swim. There are days I wish to fly. There are those days I want to call a taxi. There are days I wish the road would end. What makes me get back on that path? What makes me even care? What gives me the strength to face the challenges thrown my way? It is faith. Faith in mankind. Faith in our existence. Faith in our destiny. Faith to believe.

May you all find the strength to take hold of the challenges that present you with an attitude of defeat. Believe in yourself and what you are able to do. Keep your faith in whatever you wish to believe. Make it happen.

I Plan On

I was actually reading some of my poems I have written, and they seem ok to me. I wanted to share one with you. Hope you like it. Have fun in life. Be safe. 🙂 🙂

I PLAN ON……
I plan on being who I am

So, you plan on being you
I plan on telling it like I see it

You plan on whatever is your way
I plan on looking at life with a positive twist
You can do whatever makes it real for you
I plan on seeing the beauty in people

You can continue to make faces
I plan on keeping it real
You can do whatever makes it easy for you

We both have journeys to complete
How we do it only matters to us

My recent TRAVELS

Well, I did it. I managed to survive the long plane ride to my beautiful destinations. I have not been to Europe since 1992, so you can imagine how overwhelmed I was! I was taking in so much information 23/7 that I thought my head would explode! We rented a car in Ireland and managed to put on over 1000 miles! We went everywhere! One of my sons organized the trip. He did an awesome job!We did day trips to London and Madrid. I have never walked so much for ages! I did manage to keep up. lol

What difference does it make?

What I mean is, why do people get all wrapped up and pissed off about things that do not really make any difference anyways in life? I mean really, what is the big deal about people just saying what they are feeling and thinking and then you just let it in one ear  and out the other?Why is it always necessary to try to pick a fight and get all stressed out over something that was never a big deal in the first place? Geez, relax! Everyone is allowed to have an OPINION, just don’t always expect that people will just embrace it! Take it easy. Get off my case. Let me live!!

A Woman’s Fairy Tale

I had to share this that a friend spent to me…too funny!

 

Once upon a time,

in a land far away,
A beautiful, independent,
self assured princess,
happened upon a frog as she sat
contemplating ecological issues
on the shores of an unpolluted pond
in a verdant meadow near her castle.
The frog hopped into the Princess’ lap
and said:
” Elegant Lady,
I was once a handsome Prince,
until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.
One kiss from you, however,
and I will turn back
into the dapper, young Prince that I am
and then, my sweet, we can marry
and setup housekeeping in yon castle with my Mother,
where you can prepare my meals,
clean my clothes, bear my children,
and forever feel grateful and happy doing so.”

That night,
on a repast of lightly sauteed frogs legs
seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce,
she chuckled to herself and thought:

I don’t think so honey!

Just for Fun*

I thought this was funny. Just wanted to share. Hope all is well.

Take care of yourself each new day…Do You?

For many of us it takes an unhappy event to make us “open our eyes.” Some of us seem to think that everything is going to be fine and nothing is going to happen. I am sure many of you can relate to this or have many you know that feel this way. Well, in my opinion…I say take care of yourself each new day you are given. Eat a diet that covers all of the food groups you learned about in school..not just a few of them. Get exercise by moving and doing what you love to do instead of hate to do. Just move. Talk and spend time with your family and friends. Do not just figure they will be there when you want them to be. Pay attention to the world and what is around you. Stop taking things for granted. Each of you have many things that make you sad. Do not focus on them. Stay focused on the good in your life and the positive will happen. Always focus on what can be done, not what is already done. Focus on the fact that you are alive. Focus on the facts, not the unknown. Life can be hard. Life can be a challenge. Life can be lived in unity. Life can be acheived. Just believe in yourself. Stay healthy and well. If you need help, get it. Do not wait. Just do.

I have a brother who suffered a massive stroke on Father’s Day. He is 50 years old. I can not express to you any details out of respect for the family. I can express to you that I KNOW personally that what I just wrote is true.

Let the celebrations begin……Happy Thanksgiving*

It is that wonderful time of the year again. The time I reflect and think about all of the things I am grateful for in this life. I tend to have these moments all year long, but it seems like they mean more at Thanksgiving. I am one of those people that like to go around the dinner table and have everyone share with each other. My family and friends expect these moments, new guests to my home just give me that look. lol I just ask everyone to share one event in their life in 2012 that really made them grateful to be who they may be. I treasure each day I am given, so I would hope others could say the same.

This year my COURAGE to keep moving ahead was tested often. I have had some MINOR health issues that I let get to me this year. Usually I just ignore them. I have had my mom undergoing various little medical treatments that made me think too much about her aging. We all age, right? I have been blessed with my son who moved to Texas moving back home. I needed the courage to get him home safe. He is now already working at another job and is doing well.I have had to balance negative feelings with more positive feelings when I was in the position of helping some friends or family members in a crisis situation. I wanted to remain strong so I could help them succeed. If you look up my name and its definition….it does seem to fit.

Luisa

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Luisa is a female name of German origin  which means “glorious warrior”.

So, I hope all of you reading this post have something to be grateful for. May you all enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and friends with many smiles. May you have many cherished memories. I want to leave you all with this beautiful passage I found.

The Giver of Gifts

May the Giver of Gifts give unto you

that which is good and that which is true:

The will to help and the courage to do:

A heart that can sing the whole day through

Whether the skies be gray or blue-

May the Giver of Gifts give these to you.

RETIRED HEALTH MESSAGE

As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, I rapidly realized that I don’t really give a rat’s hiney. It’s the tortoise life for me!
1.. If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
2.. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.
3.. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.
4.. A tortoise doesn’t run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.
And you tell me to exercise?? I don’t think so.

I’m retired. Go around me.

God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Now that I’m older here’s what I’ve discovered:
1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and all-bran.

3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.

4. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

5. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

6. If all is not lost, where is it?

7. It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.

8. Some days, you’re the dog; some days you’re the hydrant.

9. I wish the buck stopped here; I sure could use a few.

10. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.

11. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.

12. It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.

13. The only time the world beats a path to your door is when you’re in the bathroom.

14. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.

15. When I’m finally holding all the cards, why does everyone want to play chess?

16. Its not hard to meet expenses . . . they’re everywhere.

17. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

18. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter . . .I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I’m hereafter

19. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

20. DID I SEND THESE TO YOU BEFORE……….??????

Have a fun week! Be sure to laugh and smile often.
