Peaceful Existence

Have you been searching for a more peaceful existence? I was; and when I let go of my concerns about what people might say if I put my feelings on display, I found the best part of myself.

Revealing your inner thoughts on a public forum are sometimes frightening because you are opening yourself up for criticism. I know that to love and be loved, you must be available. Now I know to be accepted and accepting, I must make myself available, too.

If you are afraid of your emotions, your thoughts, or your opening up to others, there’s only a few answers for that.

  • One is to be bold.
  • Another is to be brave.
  • Another is to know it’s your time.
  • And, finally, believe you deserve the best life has to offer.

Love yourself. Then you can love others. Give them the best YOU you can give

Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.

    The Thatcher quote reminds me of one from Will Rogers: “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get ran over if you just sit there” ! Van, I like what you state about the catalyst behind giving our best to others; loving ourselves. This seems so hard to do at times. Encouragement appreciated.

GOD'S POETIC CHILD!!!

Dear Reader, I am here to give you a little taste of poetry with some water on the side. When you come on my blog that's all that you will taste is Poetry. Not the type of poetry where it doesn't have a meaning. The type of poetry where you will be inspired, uplifted and you will have a different mindset once you leave this site. You might even come to get a taste of this poetry again. Don't be afraid to let your kids read this blog. My poetry is for and to help the youth. Bring them along with you. You both are scrolling down your phone or on the computer anyway. Let's have fun and get a taste of some poetry. I promise this type of poetry tastes delicious. Grab a plate and a fork and I'll feed you. ENJOY!!!!
