Zoom Up, Float Down

31 Jan

Life is full of action.  Often I am surprised by the crazy situations that occur on what seems like a constant basis.

Luck goes down and luck rises again. Things are bad and then hopefully, they turn for good.

Between the good and bad situations there is a steady balance of crazy.

Patiently I am waiting for times to change for the better and I hope to live each day with joy in my heart.

Each day I will focus on good and keep my eyes open to the beauty in my surroundings.  Counting my blessings and being grateful will reign top on my mind.

Keeping brave and courageous is the main goal.

Having Faith and following God’s plan is the path I am traveling.  Lending help to people whenever I can keeps me aware of my good fortunes and helps me stay grounded.

Having Love for people will stay strong in my Heart, even if we have differences or experience difficulties.

If things were up to me, I would never leave you and you have a friend in me for Life.

Be good, treat people well and share Love. 

The Difference you want to see in the World starts with YOU.

No, really, it does……

“I’ve Dreamed Myself A Thousand Times Around The World………..But I Can’t Get Out of This Place.”

This song is for anyone who is going though hard times.  Life is challenging sometimes and things happen that make it difficult to keep faith.  But hold strong to your intuitions and your heart to live good Life.  Each opportunity is a chance to do good and make right.  Keep going and never give up.

Oh look at how she listens
She says nothing of what she thinks
She just goes stumbling through her memories
Staring out onto Grey Street
But she thinks hey
How did I come to this
I dreamed myself a thousand times around the world
But I can’t get out of this place

There’s an emptiness inside her
And she’d do anything to fill it in
But all the colors mix together
To grey, and it breaks her heart

Oh how she wishes it was different
She prays to God most every night
And though she swears He doesn’t listen
There’s still a hope in her He might
She says I pray
But oh that they fall on deaf ears
Am I supposed to take it on myself
To get out of this place

Oh there’s a loneliness inside her
And she’d do anything to fill it in
And though it’s red blood bleeding from her now,
It feels like cold blue ice in her heart
When all the colors mix together
To grey, and it breaks her heart

There’s a stranger speaks outside her door
Says take what you can from your dreams
Make them as real as anything
Oh it’d take the work out of courage
But she says please
There’s a crazy man that’s creeping outside my door
I live on the corner of Grey Street
And the end of the world

Oh there’s an emptiness inside her
And she’d do anything to fill it in
And though it’s red blood bleeding from her now,
It’s more like cold blue ice in her heart
She feels like kicking out all the windows
And setting fire to this life
She could change everything about her
Using colors bold and bright
But all the colors mix together
To grey, and it breaks her heart
Oh it breaks her heart
To grey

Trust Much

24 Jan

Life is very interesting.  In my 31st year, I am learning lessons about trust…… trusting other people……trusting myself.

People do things in Life that we never thought they would do and sometimes other people’s actions cause others pain.

Placing trust in people is a gamble. Having too much faith in people can lead to hurt.

When I make mistakes about judging people’s character, I can’t help but second guess my own mind.  How can I be so wrong about someone I love and have spent so much time with in Life?

How can people turn their backs so easily on one another?

My Father told me I am naive, that I give people too much credit to think that everyone will be as good to me as I treat them in Life. 

“There are a lot of bad people in Life.  Many, many bad people who won’t change just because you show them kindness.”

As evidenced by recent events, I couldn’t argue with him, I had to lower my head and second guess my thoughts on how positivity can be shared so that Life can be better and more happy.

I had to reevaluate my entire Life approach.

It makes me sad and brings me to a place in my mind that is a hopeless grey area.

However, strength has to prevail and optimism will reign over negativity .  Although I can’t control other people’s actions, I can control my own and I can lead by example and not give up hope.

During one of my Life growing spurts , where I am learning hard lessons that are testing my faith, endurance and strength, I can’t help but think of a special friend in my Life.

One of my good friends has been with me every step of the way during this difficult phase in my Life.

She extends her wisdom and compassion and she listens when I need to talk.

She watches me from close and even afar to see if I am keeping in control of my mind.

She genuinely cares for me and worries if I will be ok each day.

She is a kind person, who consistently goes out of her way to help other people.  She is non-judgmental and never thinks she is better than anyone. 

If you aren’t a jerk, she loves all people the same and I watch her help change people’s lives for the better, every single day.

She has a great energy about her that comes from having a beautiful soul.  She doesn’t even know her full potential or how good she truly is – a top notch person.

She has a rare beauty that shines only from people who share their beautiful Life gifts selflessly and eloquently.

So when my Life is falling apart around me and everything about being a positive leader seems to be harder each day, I look to my friend and draw strength.

There are good people in the World and I am lucky that she can help me to hold faith.

She is younger than me by 8 years and I look forward to helping teach her and share lessons I have learned that will help her preserve a good spirit.

No one should ever take that away from another person; as a true good spirit is one of the most beautiful Life gifts.

So in my time of doubt, I thank my friend for leading by example and being kind.  She gives me hope that people can be good and stay good.

All we can do is what we can to be kind, sincere and cause as little harm as possible.

Thank You Friend, in a way, you are saving my Life.

Dedicated to :  The One and Only Lodi Dodi.
