Voices

A poem about our inner voice, and how it can heal.

The voices you choose can save your life, the voices you choose can change your life.

The voices you choose can cause you harm, make you feel sad, or can give you new hope, even during those times when you feel at the end of your rope.

The words you speak to yourself will cause you to feel down or will allow you to keep your chin up when life feels unsound. These words can sting, or they can sing, but most importantly they can heal.

So, If you continue to look up, even when you’re down, your life will start to turn right around. It may not happen fast, it may take some time, but the voices you choose will make you begin to feel just fine.

Each new day will bring something different, so allow yourself to speak; feel and let go, allowing you the room you need to listen to the voices that will help you grow.

life can be either messy, or it can be sublime, but when you choose to talk to yourself with the right voices, life will seem less complicated, and in the end, reassure you that life is not  terrible all the time.

Happiness Is In Your Way Of Thinking

If you want to be happy, read this.

Stop saying; I can’t, it can’t, I hate, it’s not easy, it’s easier said than done, I have; no time, no patience, no control over. I’m too old, I’m too young, I’m too fat, I’m too skinny. My life is; not easy, not good enough, so screwed up, too hard, not worth it. No one; loves me, likes me, wants me, thinks of me, needs me…

To be happier do this…

I can, it can, I love, it’s easy, I will not rely on my excuses. I have time, if I want to, I’m peaceful, I am in control, I’m just right. My life is messy, but it’s beautiful. It’s not easy, but what in life is easy? My life is; good the way it is, imperfect, but it’s mine, my life is worth it. I am likable, I am lovable, people are thinking of me and I feel supported, I am needed in this world. 

Great Friends Are Forever, Life Is Not

Don’t forget your friends when; you become rich, if you become poor, if you start a new career, or end one. Don’t fail to remember your friends if you’re happy, if you’re lonely, if you’re excited, or you’re sad. Because a true friend won’t forget you, and if you’re a true friend you won’t forget them too.

Don’t ignore your friends even if you’re married, dating, falling in love, or falling out of it. Don’t ignore your friends, if they forget to text you back, miss your Birthday, or don’t mention it even if they didn’t forget. Don’t close your eyes to your friends if have a minor disagreement, or any disagreement at all. One day they will need you, or you will need them too, and because you are holding a grudge, you are taking away the only way for them to reach you.

Friends, whether you consider them family or not, are a gift to have. Choose to focus on the gift they are to you instead of holding a grudge because they couldn’t call, text or be there for you, even when they wanted to.
Just like you, they may be going through something similar, or at times worse, so reach out to them even if you’re hurt. Because friends like yours, and mine, and all of us combined, are only here on this earth for a limited amount of time. So, reach out, call, text, or write to them, and keep them close to you .

Seize The Day, Or Don’t. The Choice Is Yours.

A poem about Life

If this is the only post you read today, let this be it. Let these words sink in, and penetrate deep into your soul, knowing that all you have is now, so seize this life, and seize it now. know that life is limited, not limitless. Live in the moment. Embrace your mess, ignore the naysayers and do your best. It goes by fast, and can be hard at times, but choose to believe that your life is blessed. Life is stressful, and that’s okay, choose to smile, and choose to love anyway. Your life is yours, not someone else’s, make sure you live it your way.

Please remember, though, that as tough as life is, it can be beautiful too, but only if allow it to be, this is your life, your reality. Choose to embrace your imperfections, and acknowledge your flaws, this life only comes around once, so choose to love it all. Seize your day, whatever that means to you, but don’t get so caught up in what others think of you.

Choose to be yourself, believe in yourself, love yourself, and smile. Because life is short, and won’t last forever, choose to seize this day, and love, and live it your way.
