Saturday Morning

“Every morning has a unique story. There are always some seeds of possibilities waiting to sprout.” 

― Amit Ray, Peace Bliss Beauty and Truth: Living with Positivity

“Promise Yourself”

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.” 

― Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them

“Working on Us” Week #4

Every Thursday, Beckie, from Beckie’s Mental Mess, blogs about the dangerously increasing issue of mental health. She includes a few questions and an image, encouraging participants to write of that which sparks inspiration. You can check out last week’s submittions by clicking the link above.

I am usually drawn to the images in the prompt. This week follows suite.

Caged

The darkness fell upon her,

Just as the sunset faded to night.

She feared these hours, most.

The voices would soon, resonate,

The secrets of her past, horrors of

Her life, and lies about her character.

Quiet Whispers, subtle and familiar,

The haunting familiarity of endless hours.

Her mistakes visited, stared her in the face.

Anxiety attacked every inch of her weakening confidence.

Insecurities surfaced, breaking her down.

The night brought her storms,

Caging her into solitude, fearful of judgement.

She struggled with facing society, functioning normally,

And do so while sensing judgement from every passerby.

Until, one day, she declared, “Enough!”

She spread her wings

And broke free.

I Can Hear Music

For every sad song, a heart is healing.

For every lullaby, a baby sleeping.

For every melody, a nostalgic feeling.

For every rock song, a soul breaking free.

For the rap music, a soul meets inner city soul.

The love longs dance the romance of a heart.

For every R & B, one is transcending into mindfulness.

For every Jazz song, a small put off club plays for laidback pleasure.

For this gift, that which meets me just where I am,

I give my greatest thanks.
