Off The Ledge

image

 

She talked me off the ledge.
She saw my tiredness.
She calmed my spirits.
She was my voice of reason.
She is only 5!

She is my inspiration.
She is my purpose.
She is my joy.
She is my munchkin.

How badly do you want it?

image

 

If you want something bad enough
you’ll find a way to get it.
Success isn’t necessarily measured
by how tall you stand
but by having the perseverance
to keep on trying even when you fall.

How determined are you?

Is your agenda pure and healthy
or is it at the expense of others?
Do your accomplishments 
usurp someone else’s happiness?

How fair are you?

When you climb to the next step,
do you share your success secrets
or do you leave behind the ones
who’ve helped you along the way?

How grateful are you?

Are you ready to push?
Are you ready to fight through the pain?
Are you ready to rise?
Are you strong enough to keep on climbing?

How brave are you?

Poetry

Today is a good day…

image

The air is light today.
I can feel my lungs
Opening up to full capacity.
I can feel the oxygen
Coursing through my veins.

There’s a spring in my step,
My mind is alert and productive.
I sprinted to the bus,
Dashed to the train,
Poured my thoughts out
Which made room
For new ideas.

This awesome feeling
Is truly an incredible experience.
Days like these are to be treasured
And not taken for granted.
I feel blessed…

Building Bridges…

image
 
 

The bridges we build
Can lead us to places unknown.
Friendships that become
more than just a passing glance
can start with just a simple smile.

A polite “Hello” or “How are you? ”
can lead to a mutual understanding.
Things we have in common
are what binds us together
and makes us feel like we belong.
No one wants to feel alone.
We are all pieces of a large puzzle,
each of us having a unique purpose.

The bridges we build
need not be traveled alone,
for we can all use a hand to hold.
But if a bit of solitude is necessary,
please don’t break those bridges down
after you’ve crossed,
for others may want to follow
in your footsteps.

Be proud of your journey,
and remember to be present
in all the moments of your life.
May the bridges you cross
lead you to your destiny.
May your life story
keep traveling
long after you’ve passed on
from this world,
continuing to build bridges
as did you.

Short Stories

Share the love…

We met at the glove aisle.
Well, it wasn’t an entire aisle, just a rack against a wall in a strategic location – – an after thought of sorts.

The rack was picked clean, and only the not so attractive items remained – – slim pickings on this frigid winter day.

You needed a scarf and gloves while I just needed gloves as my last pair were kidnapped by my eldest over the weekend. As I made my way through the fugly selection of women’s driving gloves and few faux leather men’s gloves, you approached and became visibly discouraged by the remnants. You were immediately drawn to the gloves in my hand since they were thick and super comfortable so I’m pointed them out on the rack but noted they were for women. You didn’t believe me as they seemed so masculine. I agreed and encouraged you to get them instead.

There’s no way I’d be able to wear these without getting a few strange looks!

You agreed, but not without grabbing a pair and proceeding to search for the section with scarves.

Of course, the good stuff was gone and we both busted out laughing when you held up a fuzzy puppy dog scarf appropriate for a 5 year old but certainly not a grown up. You said,

Now that’s a bit too much. Think I’ll pass!

I agreed and you put it back and headed off in search of something more suitable as we bade each other farewell and Happy New Year.

What a laugh that was!

I had been busy and rushing all day with not much time to rest or have a proper lunch. And there I was with only 10 minutes to spare to find a pair of gloves to fight off this New Year deep freeze before plunging neck deep into my rush hour commute.

That moment of laughter turned my mood around and gave me a smile to last the whole sardine-packed, train ride home. I needed that laugh and it came just in time!

I’ve shared this little anecdote to remind us to:

Brighten someone’s day!
Share a smile
Or better yet
Share a laugh.
You never know
When your kind gesture
Would make all the difference.
Share the love…

Hugs,
A.
