Food for thought

Some times what we perceive as hurt was just a loved one’s bad day. I have bad days. I do not intend to hurt those I love when I have a bad day but I can and I have. I do not love them less. It is what they perceive at the moment. I have to believe I can be forgiven for my bad days so I can go on. Sometimes I am not . . . this does not make it the end of the world . . . although it may feel so briefly.

Faith is believing unconditionally. We have faith, if we paid our electric bill, when we flip a switch we will have light. Why then is it hard to have faith in . . . finding hope . . . spending an eternity at peace . . . falling in love . . . after being hurt?

Do not be a victim in life . . . take control of your senses and self. Love unconditionally . . . be happy in that brief moment . . . when hurt, heal yourself . . . and continue the quest.

Often times, we hurt those we love the most . . . without meaning to. Apologize and believe they have the ability to forgive and forget just as you believe you would.

When I do not receive love or respect from whom I have in my life, life is too precious and unpredictable to stay; therefore, it is a blessing when they walk away.

Do not be afraid to love and hurt . . . to be alone out of fear of hurt is not living. What a waste of a majestic resource!

When I hurt . . . I cry . . . I scream . . . I cry again . . . I laugh . . . I heal . . . and life does not end but continues gloriously.

Lies we tell ourselves keep us from living. Stop believing your own lies which keep you from living, loving and having.

When we live in fear … anger … jealousy … hate … envy … betrayal … hurt … we create our own living hell.

I will not punish myself for whom or what I believe I should be. I forgive myself for not being perfect.

Attention is the ability we have to discriminate and to focus only on that which we want to perceive.

Be reckless with love . . . shower it on people . . . throw it to the wind and let it land where it will.

Let it go. Whatever it is that is causing you to be sad . . . angry . . . alone . . . let it go.

Everyone is a mirror.

Inner beauty lasts a lifetime.

Self rejection is unacceptable . . .

Love does not always equal hurt.

Do your best and live life productively.

Sometimes, love hurts but only if we let it.

Plant love . . . laughter . . . dreams . . . hope.

Forgive loved ones . . . and then truly forget.

Be real . . . more importantly . . . be realistic.

Walking away sometimes hurts, but hurts heal.

Perfection is our own interpretation of what it should be.

We can create chaos with our words . . . speak with caution.

The truth is the most important part of being who you are meant to be.

It is normal . . . expected . . . ok to miss companionship. We are all social creatures and are not meant to be alone. Ask my insanely beautiful, wise, young, prodigal daughter. She is the one who gave me permission to do this. I needed the permission.

These are my thoughts on life and help me get through daily battles or struggles. My thoughts are not wrong to me. I hope you read one that transforms your life.

I don't know what I want or is it I know what I don't want?

I have come to terms that I will always have days when I will know what it is I want from and out of life . . . and there will be days that I won't . . . what does remain constant is knowing what I don't want from or out of life . . . such as . . . condemnation . . . confusion . . . judgement . . . when I give of myself . . . I do it freely . . . especially ever since the accident . . . there is no time to be lost or wasted doing something half-way or against one's will. Life is too unpredictable to live one that is not exactly what I want it to be . . . or the closest I can get to it anyway! Am I the only one that feels this way?

My dear friend, Ray

This is one of my favorite buffaloes at the moment!

His name is Ray and to me . . . he's the kindest man I know. He always makes me laugh with the funniest sayings. Whenever we get together to have a quick beer and some conversation . . . before I know it four hours have flown by! He knows all my siblings and when I want to tell him a story about our family . . . I don't have to waste time explaining who people are . . . so I am wicked comfortable with him . . . he has always treated me with the utmost respect and I respect him because of his Christian beliefs and work ethic . . . when I look into his eyes I see his kindness towards others and I love his smile . . . he is a VERY giving individual . . . his generous spirit always leaves me in awe and humbles me . . . these are just a FEW of the reasons why he is my favorite buffalo. Everyone should have a friend like Ray in their lives!
