blog of a person who seems to be invisible...
ok.. so I'm taking a next step in my life. I'm improving on myself. I'm going down this path i am on, thanks to God. I now attend a church regularly, and I like its small confines in a church building i attended nearly 40 years ago. To me it is surreal.|
Do i know whats ahead, or even where I am going? no, not at all. to be honest it scares me, but I need to step out of my fear and take charge of my life, and live it the way I and God want me to be. where ever this path goes, I'm sticking it out to the end. I feel it is a testament to who I am.
I am learning more and more everyday about myself. and improving, also trying to make amends for past mistakes.
But one can only make amends for mistakes where there was mistakes to begin with, if people don't want to listen then that is their fault, and their loss. I wont go where im not wanted and I know I am a good man, if you don't.. well that's too bad so sad for you...

A travel website recently compiled a world map showcasing the slogans of different countries, most of which were created by tourism boards to promote tourism. Take a look at the wide variety of national slogans and create a story or poem using the slogan you've chose.
I chose canada's slogan..."keep exploring"
its really not hard to do,
you just put one foot before the other,
then off you will go.
The weather matters not,
nor will it stop you now,
pull out the bag or a cot,
before long every body will be saying ciao.
there really isn't any end to find,
you'll never have to keep up,
or be in a bind.
You'll see many things, brand new,
and the old along the way,
what you'll see along the road,
will be totally up to you.
so keep exploring
and never stop,
cuz it is exciting
being on the top.

normally i would have followed the prompt for the day. But I don't feel this prompt is an interest to me today. I have got a lot on my mind,and I'm also trying to remain upbeat and positive about everything. I am finally truly loving myself. The last few weeks and months have taught me well. I feel so much better when I finally realized that I always did, that I was ignoring the that that I did and letting my situations I was in color my view of it.
I've been through a lot lately, a lot of things are challenging every bit of faith I have had in myself, my friends, family, and relationships. I guess I needed to tear down the walls to see the real person that was waiting with in. It truly has been a journey of discovery for me.
I am now absolutely ready for anything life throws at me. I truly am on the right path. I do not know whether anybody else sees it in me, but it does not matter if they did or not, the only thing that matters is me. I will be happy. I will be me regardless of what anybody else feels. I do love myself, and this opens me up to endless possibilities for me in the future.
I do want to surround myself with people who believe in me, and strengthen me, and love me for who I am. Nobody will destroy this that is with in me. NOBODY! I feel sorry for anybody who tries to change that.!
ok... its time for this man to go to work. see you all later...LLAP!

Prompt: "We ought to think that we are one of the leaves of a tree, and the tree is all humanity. We cannot live without the others, without the tree." Pablo Casals Use this quote to inspire a story, poem, or write whatever this quote inspires you to write.
we ought to think that we are the leaves of a tree,
There for all humanity to see,
We cannot live with out the rest,
We stay on a branch, without a single pest.
We applaud the breeze as it goes by,
like some parade under a crystal clear blue sky.
When the storms roll in,
we watch them pass,
taking all that destruction,
and water from the grass,
we grow more and spread far,
creating a shady spot on the ground not too fr.
we ought to think that we are leaves of a tree,
there for all humanity to plainly see.

Prompt: Write a short story or a poem using the following as 3 phrases for inspiration:
1. The Dreamer's Scent 2. the beauty of simplicity 3, I only needed your pretty face.
Feel free to pick whatever works for you.
here I sit in a room so cold,
wondering how I got to be so old,
that I could not see,
all the beauty of simplicity.
I tried to make things so hard,
until everything fell like a house made of a card,
and once it did I picked it up,
and tried again,
swearing to myself that it could work,
I tried and tried and tried some more,
until they all fell each time landing on the floor.
All the things that I can do,
yet I couldn't see that which I should see
all things that could be,
the beauty of simplicity.

Prompt: Pick out your favorite inspirational, motivational, or spiritual quote and write a poem, prose or monologue about it. Please include the quote and who said it in your post.
"an honest answer is like a kiss on the lips"
as sweet as honey or as soft as rose hips.
It is something I wish I had all the time.
I should give it more, if i did i would shine.
an honest answer is like a kiss on the lips
it is something just just honestly fits.
like the right shoe
it just feels right
like a cloudless starry night.
I wish I had given it more oft
things would have been better
the hardness would have been soft.
but I never give up trying
for the next time it is needed
i just have to remember
an honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.

Prompt: "Thinking: the talking of the soul with itself." Plato Write your thoughts on this inspirational quote.
I like this prompt, because I am a perfect example of why you should always listen when your soul is talking to itself and head what it tells you to do. If I had listened to it, when it told me what to do, I would not have gone through the pain i suffered and had the scars that I do today. But I'm not going down that path again, I'm going to leave it there.
The soul knows what and who it wants. I believe it gets this guidance directly from God, himself. And He willingly gives it, as I believe it is one of the main ways he communicates with us. When we have a problem that we need to think about, he knows how to solve it, but so does the "other guy", and that is why we often have a devil one one shoulder and the angel on the other.
As humans, we often listen to both sides and really there is only 3 things which can come out of it. 1. we listen to the angel in which case we always win). 2. we listen to the devil in which case we loose, because although we may accomplish our goal, it is only a part of what it could be, if that). or 3. we combine them both and make up our own directives as to what we are going to do, which by the way is the dumbest thing to do.
Now we have our freewill to do what we wish, and we may be intelligent, as humans go, but there is a difference between intelligence and wisdom and a wise man is the one who knows when to use which.
I am not such a wise man, Im not going to go into details on here but I chose number 3, not wise at all. The scars I got from hurting someone very special to me, will stay with me forever. Although I might smile on the outside, trust me Im not smiling within. Sometimes there are mistakes you make that sorry just cant makeup for, no matter how long you say it. But life goes on, and I step forward. I live on. I refuse to let anything stop me from getting what I should have, and what will make me happy. of that I do promise myself, and god! I will make all the right decisions and NEVER second guess my soul again.
|well today has really been a great day. Beautiful sunny day. It was very busy, but over all I have had a fantastic day. I actually am surprised how good the day can be when all your stresses are gone. I can finally concentrate on my job. I guess I just got a good nights sleep. that is what it has to be.
The day started out a bit cold, didn't have to use gloves to climb on the loader like I did yesterday. I am now looking forward to tomorrow and what that day brings... I am so excited about it. Im sorry I have been sounding so bad lately to all those who read my stuff, but it will be better now.
There was alot on my mind but that is now gone, and Im happier for it.
What do you think? what are you thinking? tell me I would like to hear about it, but be honest, and keep it clean.

Prompt: An Exercise in Humility. Write whatever this phrase inspires you to say?
An exercise in humility can be a good thing. It keeps you level headed and thinking clearly so one doesn't make any stupid moves nor mistakes. But at the same time it can scare the living heck out of you, if not used carefully and respected.
I sometimes can use a lesson, or two, or three, in humility as I sometime talk when I should shut up, or even answer a question before the asker even finishes asking( yes! I know that sound weird, but hey, it works). I have a bad habit of doing that, it is, however, a work in progress...
I know I need several of these as I have a distorted view on this. I need so many lessons on humility, I should just write a book about it. HA HA!
