Hello all! Have ever you stopped to think about what someone else may be going othrough? We all get busy in our day to day life and sometimes it is all we can do to keep up with what we ourselves are going through. Our lives are surely busy and complicated at best. If we take a few seconds out of our time to think of how hard another’s life really is, we will not seem to be the focal point. We may also realize that the tree is not always greener on the other side, that things we may be experiencing are not as difficult or as hard as someone else’s. Empathy is a good quality, it can make a person feel more thankful.
We never know what another is facing or going through. Perhaps a person you encountered just lost someone who was their whole world. Maybe that grumpy co-worker has an abusive child or husband waiting for them at home. Maybe that person who was stern with you has lost everything they had and wants you not to make the same mistakes.
Please be kind, please think further than the tip of your nose. Everyone has their own battles, demons, and trials. Not everything is great for each individual you may encounter today.
Struggling with uncertainties
Looking at all my frailities
Questions the strategies
Pondering all the negativities
Wondering if there are possibilities
I am hostage to.
Mingling with my enemies
Reaching for my legacy
Hiding my awful tendencies
Always looking for the penalties
My own body, mind, and soul’s felonies
Wishing for real serenity
I am hostage to.
Feeling inept showing my jealousy
Humming along with a melody
Things really affect me mentally
Having my own specialties
There is little rarities
The shadows have many enmities
I am hostage to.
I am nominating a few folks for participation in my award. It is an award to acknowledge Random Acts of Kindness. If you wish to accept, you should…
Here is a poem from my book of poetry, HeartStones…
Back then, people took meaningful “somethings”
Pictures, that said something about who was in them
It was the talk of the moment when someone spied a photo album
People displayed photos, like the circus displayed its performers
Photographs, were usually black and white, but that never changed their sparkle
In the many pictures you’d have relatives of all ages and in all manners of dress
People would reconnect or recollect the times, the places, and the faces.
In photographs, people stayed the way they were, at that moment.
If they were dead, it did not matter,
If they were old or young or had just begun,
Because, they were remembered from these photographs.
In pictures you could stay”forever’
I find that comforting and a little strange, in the same manner.
The first picture is on my desk at home. I do love the heart shape and I love collecting coffee cups. I also like my cat print writing pens.
I was just going to do a follow-up on things that are going on with my page and with me, etc.
I just got back from my doctor’s appointment. I had my blood drawn which I am so used to since being a Diabetic. I hardly even notice the stick from the needle anymore.
See, I must have it taped for a bit, till it stops bleeding. This is to check my blood sugars for my A1C and all my other stats.
I have stayed pretty busy doing my webpage, producing posts, etc. I am not sure it all is getting seen though.
Thanks guys, have a good rest of the week!
You are too special not to be loved like you deserve and want.
You are good just the way you are.
And for those that believe and have faith… God loves you no matter what you are, what you have done. Even if you do not believe in him, he loves you too.
How are you all doing? I hope you are well today and everyday.
As you know I write poems. I have published 3 self published books, for those who do not already know. I started this blog originally to get the information of those books out into the public.
I since have added recipes, news information, personal information share, music information shares, and song videos and lyric shares, as well as various other things.
I know it appears to some maybe, that I am all over the spectrum of things. I like being that way but I really feel the need to share things that other might enjoy.
I wrote up the RAKA AWARD, for those who don’t know what that is, look it up. It is an award for random acts of kindness. Hope you will check my page out to see more.
I recently started sharing products that I use and like. I am not sure for how long I will do this sort of posts but I feel it is good , if a person finds something that they like and to share that with others. If you are like me, you appreciate the information.
I think so far, I have a good variety of things. I do not like to be boring or mundane. So far, I have loved seeing the positive feedback others give me, and I hope to continue in doing so.
I hope you know, you all matter. I hope you know there is no one quite like you.
I hope you each feel loved, accepted and cherished.
I wish for you, that you see brighter days, see the sun rise and set on better days.
Continue encouraging others, reaching out to others, and caring about each other.
Life is so short, we have only this lifetime to be that beacon in someone’s dark world.
