Last night barking and singing

Last night, the dog, the bird, and I suffered from a sleepless night. The dog barked. The bird sang. Me, I did not bark or sing. Yawn. πŸ™‚

“Character is higher than intellect.” Unknown

In A Lifetime or Eternity?

There was this beggar. He used to sit under a rich man’s table to catch the crumbs that fell from it.

The beggar had a life of misery. The rich man had a life of luxury.

The beggar believed in God; the rich man did not.

They both died.

The beggar went to heaven. The rich man went to hell.

The beggar was comforted. The rich man tormented.

“But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, an likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.” Luke 16 vs 25

Is this it, a lifetime? Or is there more, an eternity? Judge for yourself and live accordingly. πŸ™‚

“And you speak of signs and wonders, But I need something other, I would believe if I was able, But I’m waiting for the crumbs from your table.” U2

Twinkling in the Darkness

For those who have been and still areΒ  bright spots in places where there is pain and suffering, shine on. πŸ™‚

But Can He/She Parent?

“Parenthood is a state which some miss by chance and others by design, and a vocation to which not all are called.” Jane Howard

So those of you who are considered good parents, do not forget to lend a hand to those who are not, especially if they are willing to accept advice and help. πŸ™‚

Your body is

like a sacred temple. Treat it as such.

Daylight of the Mind

I was thinking about calling this post sinking, swimming, or floating life, but I changed my mind. Why? Daylight just seems appropriate for what I want to say.

There are times, moments in our lives where things are not going right. During times like these we may not see any reason or reasons to smile. Our eyes may see the positive, our ears may hear the reassurances, but our minds are stuck in the negative. It is dark.

I am a person that has been through a lot and even though I try to keep it morning in my mind, somehow night creeps in. But, yes but, I refuse to let it stay that way for a long time. Why? Once I become miserably comfortable, I am not going to feel any better.

Yes, find out the cause of your pain. Yes, face your pain. Yes, feel your pain, Yes, live your pain. Yes, go through your pain. Yes, deal with your pain. But for crying out loud, do not fall in love with it.

We will go through it differently, but try not to stay in the darkness.

“We live in an age of freedom, independence, and the self, and I imagine this loneliness is the price we have to pay for it.” from the novel Kokoro by Natsume Soseki πŸ™‚

Healthy Separation

Sometimes it is not life that you need to get away from, but the people in your life.

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” Carl Bard πŸ™‚
