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.

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!

Have Faith

Have Love

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

Have Hope

Have Love

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 WILL NOT SURRENDER…..

Re-blogging this poem I wrote and it fits me now because of recent circumstances. Hope you like it! Stay well and happy! 🙂

What is it that makes me continue with my journey in life
Is it the curiosity
Is it the awareness factor
Is it the desire to live

What makes some of us think we can do anything,
and some of us think we are failures

Is it a matter of how we grew up
Is it a path that has been chosen
Or do we decide what is and what is not
Do we have the power to take charge
Is it most of us who ask these questions, or only me
Am I alone in this universe, or do I have a family with the same thoughts

Sometimes I think that attitude is the key to all doors.
Yes, my attitude is..most definitely my biggest reward.

I will keep my positive attitude, no matter what is selected for me to consume.
I will stay focused and alert.
I will not surrender!

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

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!

Believe in Yourself

Well, it seems like I am gravitating these days to my blog that I have been away from on a regular basis. It seems like I want to express myself these days. When I get thoughts into my head that take over what I am trying to do at that moment, I just say “What the *ell,” i am going to blog. Now, I do not know how long this is going to go on…so, please bear with me. 🙂 Some of my blogging friends are so good about blogging EVERY DAY! I remember when I first started, I would stay up most of the night blogging and posting!! Blogging has helped me with my mental health. When my mental health is stronger, my physical health follows on a much better path. So, those of you who stop by and do not have a blog….start one! Those of you who are so kind and generous with your time to visit my blog often….thank you. May you all find in your life what you need to make each day go by a bit easier. I always SMILE. No matter what, I reflect on all of my blessings and a smile magically appears.

Rest in Peace Mom

mom-2017

butterfly-rose

It is my belief that my mom is resting in peace now. She was lucky enough to live out her life the way she felt like. She overcame many struggles. She enjoyed many moments of happiness. She always did her best to make all of those around her happy. Since she is of Italian decent, she just loved to feed people! If you did not eat what she made, she would say, “What’s wrong with the food, eat!” LOL After a while, we all just surrendered and ate. LOL She worked until she was 81 years old as a food demo person at Costco Wholesale. She loved feeding all of the customers, especially the kids. LOL She took ill a few years ago. She managed to do her best. She passed quietly in her sleep at 85 years old. We should all be so lucky, huh?

We made an EVERIPEDIA page for my mom. You can do one for any of your loved ones that have passed. I was touched when the team did this.

Any prayers for my mom DELIA, would be appreciated.
