Smile in Life

Each day we have choices.

We can just say that we have had enough and retreat.

We can also say that we have had enough, and do something about it.

In your little corner of the world, you can make a difference.

Make it for the better good of ALL of mankind.

Our existence can be resting in your hands.

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.

Peace

Please accept me for who I am. The rewards will be endless.

Embrace life as ir should be. With uncertainty, yet hope.

Always make a commitment to yourself to do all you can. Defeat should not be an option.

Care for others as you would want others to care for you. Makes perfect sense to me.

Enjoy believing. Accept your limitations and seek to toss them from your dreams.

Have Faith

Have Hope

Have Love

Life is Short”

“They say it takes a minute

to find a special person.

An hour to appreciate them.

A day to love them,

but then an entire life

to forget them.”

This statement I found got me thinking about my friends and family. I recently lost my brother suddenly. We really do not know what the next day holds, so we should appreciate all that we have everyday. Getting upset over something that isn’t worth having a heart attack over is something we should learn to control. We should see each day as a challenge that will have positibe results. We should embrace life and enjoy every moment of it. I agree, life is short. That is why I try to do what I can when I can and not dwell on what I haven’t done yet . It gets you nowhere!

Release pause

I decided to release the “pause” button for laughter in my life that I pressed of late.

When someone you love dearly parts this world

and continues their path in their new “home”,

one is entitled to a pause so as to reflect on life in their own world.

Well, I am ready to keep living now and do the very best I can do

with what ever life decides to throw my way.

Of late, thanks to the “news”, I have a lot to laugh about.

I decided crying about it just makes “them” win more.

I will win.

I will LAUGH!

Have Faith

There is always love

No matter what you are dealt in life to deal with,

There is always love

No one will be able to convince me otherwise, so please do not even try

We are born into this world

There is love

We pursue what is given us to ration and with it the ability of making our own conclusions

Even when we feel defeated

There is love

Search your surroundings and determine where you feel you safe zone is, and develop different strategies

Have Faith

Have Hope

Have Love

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

Use all of your senses, do not discriminate!

Five Senses:” the faculties of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch.”

These days it see,s that a lot of you out there are always setting goals! What is a goal, you ask? “the object of a persons ambitions or effort, an aim of desired result.”

Well, I am suggesting you set a goal today or any day, to use ALL of your 5 senses and appreciate them being there! I think we take them for granted. It seems like we only appreciate them when they have a problem they are causing us! Not me! I totally realize the gift of ALL my senses!

For some, it is only when they are suffering that they see.

For some, it is only when they appreciate what they are eating, they taste.

For some, it is not when they hear a compliment but when they are focusing on the stupidity going on, they do hear.

For some, it is not when they have the comfort and love of a hug, but instead when someone accidentally runs into them, that they experience touch.

Open your eyes to beauty. Open you eyes to life. Focus on ALL of the senses you are privileged to have.

Have Faith!

Have Hope!

Have Love!

Making the turn that works for you

live your life.jpg

Every day you have to hear the same thing over and over again

You just can not take it any longer

You express yourself to others

You are dazzled by their response

You feel like no one really understands

You just want to run away, really far

That way it will all just disappear

Things will be nice and calm

You can just do what ever you feel like

Well, wrong

That fantasy will only last as long as you decide to make it last

You did not have to be so dramatic in your previous life

You just had to open your eyes

The world is the world, no matter where you decide to make it yours

The key point is, make it yours!

Get involved

Get a new reality set in your head

ENJOY, SMILE, CRY,APPLAUD

Just LIVE!

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
