Joy

Eyes of Innocence!!

” When i looked into her eyes, there was innocence, white, pure!

My worries, concerns all fell away like autumn leaves.  The overwhelming foreboding disappeared into the fantasy of “story time…”

( I wrote this poem about my beautiful niece, who has a love for stories, by simply making a game out of words, can turn my world around in minutes.. Thank you)

Observations!

Have you ever sat and just observed people. Their likes, habits, dislikes, hates, what some of us call OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), I don’t like this discription, the choices they make, and wondered “Why”? Why do they do certain things, say such things, act such a way?

Do you find these things annoy you, easily, more and more each time. I mean really get under your skin. Just to hear their answer or action to something makes you angry inside.

Observation of my self this week.
Why would “I”, react a certain way to others peoples choices? ( lets just say its a negative rection, as negative is what gets a response these days)

Is it because I actually cared about this person?
Or is it because I morally or ethically disagreed with their choice?

Could it be that they just did not fit the right mould so to speak of what I thought was the way things should go or unfold. ( more or less the way “I” want it to be).

Ok, so that leaves me with what?

How do you walk away, accept, say Ok, thats you and this is me, I don’t like it but thats your way not mine, agree to disagree?

My conlcusion!
Stop focusing on other people and the negative and spend more time on what makes you happy.
Someone once said “never give up the pursuit of happiness” but there is another part to this.
Let happiness be the purpose of your pursuit.

You, me, we deserve to be happy. Whatever, shape, form, word or experience that comes in!!!

Today I am happy knowing that the world may be a bit of a mess, but if I open my eyes long enough and observe what is around me. I see that regardless, this world is a beautiful place, and yes there are beautiful people also.

Peace!

Sadness is like poison,
all consuming with no
limit or care to its
distruction.

Peace is that feeling
of comfort like
a feeling of this
is ok.
Maybe not always what
we hope for but
still we have peace.

Seek to find peace in
the small things.
What we take for granted.
And may not be there tomorrow.

Seek peace in knowing you
are the one you need
to live with first.
Be happy and confident
in you.

After all you are worth it.
Sadness is no more.
You deserve to find peace
in whatever choice you
make..
