learn from the past, live for the day, and look to the future.
From the heart reaches the heart.
You should never judge a book by its cover. Just because someone is quiet does not mean they have never been through anything. It may be because they have been through some deep things. Just because someone is outspoken doesn’t mean they know everything. They may not know anything but how to keep talking. Empty wagons make a lot of noise.
“The Heart within Me” Thoughts sway in an array of beauty Gestured towards the beating of the heart, Of one who is open to dream. A sound asking what does it all mean, And when will the solution be found? Anxiously heading towards the beginning of a journey. It is the flowing of water inside … Keep reading
Life as we speak is in motion. Right now I am in transition. I don’t know how long this transition will last, but I am ready for the end results. There is so much more to me than meets the eye. On the inside my heart follows a different beat. I am so ready to awaken and indulge in all the new senses of life. I want so much more. I dream so big. Sitting in one spot all day is such a bore. Every day, the same repetitive things make me yawn. My life is in transition and I can hardly wait for the big reveal! My life is in motion.
I am learning to live for the day. I am learning to live for the moment. Impulse living brings out a joy for the moment that goes beyond anything that could be scheduled. I am learning to go with the flow. I am learning how to live and take life and conquer it like I’m riding a storm. Day by day my smile is getting bigger. Simple moments are making my heart beat stronger. I am living.
Laughter continues to highlight my day. I love to laugh. I laugh because I am blessed to be living! This laughter is a joyous kind. This laughter lights up my face. I am laughing.
Love is now something I am looking forward to. My heart was cold and I did not even desire to be loved at one time. But now that I have a different perspective, I am optimistic about love finding its way to me. This is such a big deal for me! I am loving.
I am living, I am laughing, I am loving
I was just thinking about how I feel right now at this second. I feel happy. I feel relieved. I have the biggest smile on my face right now just because life has given me so many reasons to smile! I am enjoying my life and I have a reason to smile. I have breath in my body and O so many reasons to live and to love. Little things mean so much. A kind word can go a long way. Encouraging words can change the course of the day. I am starting to experience new and wonderful things that make my smile stretch even further. Life is good! I feel great! I feel like smiling! I feel like dancing! I feel like jumping!
This is the most recent video by Willow Smith, daughter of Will & Jada Smith. She debuted it yesterday at the 2012 BET awards show. This video just really stood out to me because of the words and message in the song. One particular line just captivated me and it is “Your validation is just not that important to me.” This is so true! If only people could look past outward appearances.
This is a poem I have written entitled “Getting back the moment.” I hope you enjoy.
Getting back the moment
What if we could get back the moment, where memories stood still?
A place long ago in space and time when love was beautiful and real.
Happiness lasted every second, dreams came true when you smiled.
Your laughter was like music, our love ran free and wild.
Getting back the moment would make it all worth while.
Forever was never long enough, I long to embrace your gentle touch.
I reach out to take your hand, but you are no longer there.
A memory yet faded, it seems my journey has detoured.
But what do I do? I have never been here before and I don’t know where to go.
Then through your whisper I hear,
“You will love once more, my dear, do not fear, I am here.”
Getting back the moment is now a reality because you are ever near!”
