Ticking Time

Hear the seconds tick away...see the clock hands circle around and around.  Time, it is always moving, never stopping...How much time do we have?

How many years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds do we have left?  How will you spend your time?  I don't know if I would want to know the answer.  Just live.

Live with no regrets.  Live knowing you always tried your best.
Live turning the other cheek or just walking away from trouble. Live with love and most of all just live...

We never know when the clock will stop, so keep listening for the ticks...

Cascade

On days like today, I just want to let the shower to run...washing over me, with a hot, cleansing embrace.

I want to drown in the feeling of sanctuary as the water tumbles downward.  I do not know what beckons me here.  I just know the comfort I feel from the percussion of cascading water.

I let the water run until the heat no longer presents itself and my skin begins to tire.  A blanket of steam caresses the room in a cocoon of warmth.

It is only then when I feel restored...

Unrest

There have been so many acts of violence lately that it really makes you wonder what is going on with the world nowadays.

In my neck of the woods, there was rioting earlier this week.  I understand frustration but not hurting others or destroying property to get some point across~ which if you haven't notice~ was lost in the noise.

I guess people with power are always destined to abuse it and I think that is what we are seeing.

Those who are not being heard are lashing out~ but do you really think change is going to come?

I am leery because I don't think there is a true solution to our current problems.  Sure, we can put a band-aid on it~ but that is no real fix~people would have to actually change~ and I don't think we are willing to do that just to make someone else's life a little better~

It really is a shame....

The Game of Life

Do we get complacent if life?

I guess there is a comfort in the predictability of things, knowing what to expect.

I think we strive for some sense of routine but are we happy when we get what we think we want?

For me, it seems as soon as I get to a place where I start feeling comfortable with life, I collide and everything that was so settled is now shaken up.

It seems that my life is but a game of perfection, fast-moving, popping fun which always borders on frustration, but yet, I still play...

I just need to accept that fact that I can not determine the exact path my life.

I cannot predict the hurdles or the straightaways.  I just have to learn to enjoy the ride...

Stormy Night

I could hear the rain slowly thumping against the outside of the tent. The cool breeze made me shiver slightly and I pulled the sleeping bag around me a little tighter. I listened to the rhythm of the falling drops until a clap of thunder shook the very edge of my pounding heart. I darted upward and clutch the sleeping bag tightly. I closed my eyes as the rain hammered relentlessly.  My rigid body filled with unbridled fear from the passing storm.

I must have screamed in terror because you suddenly appeared in my tent. I was rocking back and forth and I know you could feel my fear as you slipped your arm around me tightly and rested your chin on the top of my head. You whispered my name breathlessly against my cheek and lowered your lips toward mine...

Your imagination is worth more than the words I can write...take it to the edge and find your own inspiration...

Embrace the Chaos

Why do you work so hard?

Do you love what you so passionately that you can't get enough of it or do you just want to earn more money so you can meet your financial needs or are you helping someone out?

You have to ask yourself, "Is it worth it?" You should look around and ask yourself if you need everything you are working so hard to buy.  You might consider downsizing.

You should not neglect yourself.  You need to treat yourself to something that brings your joy.  You cannot sacrifice your present in hopes for a future.  What if it never comes?  What will you have then?  Future dreams may fall short of your expectations because you are avoiding the present and not really building for what may be.

Are you alone because you are not making time for a relationship?  Don't get lost in a larger than life world and forget that you are a part of something larger than yourself.   Step away from work and fully detach from it~ be fully present in your something else.  Sometimes this means saying no~ this does not make us selfish, it make us survivors in our own skin.

To be well balanced you need to trust your gut and adjust as you go, get plenty of rest and most importantly reach out~ and embrace the chaos...

Say What?

Have you ever been in a situation where you didn't know what to say to someone's negative comment or you think of an awesome comeback, however is a day or two later?

I am usually on my toes and I can dish out what is dealt to me, but occasionally I don't know how to respond.

So I made a list of some comebacks I will be using at a later date....

  1. If everywhere you go there's a problem...Guess what?
  2. You should really come with a warning label.
  3. Please cancel my subscription to your issues.
  4. Who ate your bowl of sunshine this morning, thundercloud?
  5. Before you judge me, make sure you google yourself.
  6. Some people create their own storms and then upset when it rains.
  7. I guess if you spoke your mind, you'd be speechless.
  8. Don't judge me, I was born to be awesome...not perfect.
  9. Actions prove who someone is, words just prove who they want to be.
  10. Where's your off button?
  11. I didn't know you were an expert on my life and how I should live it.  Continue while I take notes.
  12. Some people should use a glue stick instead of chapstick.
  13. It is funny how the people who know me the least have the most to say.

Of course, when I probably need one of these comebacks, I won't be able to reach it...only time will tell.
