How-to-Heal-a-Broken-Heart1

 

It’s been thirteen years,

It was a year that

I realized my fears

A year that I thought

I may drown in my own tears

The memory of it

Remains seared

On my heart

burned so deep

I’m charred

Branded

I felt abandoned

And Scarred Continue reading

Don’t ‘assume’ that you know why I like you.

The infamous ‘like’ button.

We see it on facebook, WordPress, Instagram, Stumble Upon and list goes on.

People ‘like’ to keep track, tally and constantly compare one another’s stats and above all ‘likes’.

I’ve noticed the trend and it’s made me quite curious so I’ve decided to explore the concept of liking in a little more depth.

What is the criteria that you use to determine when you will give a like?  Is it a conscious thought process or do you just like away?  Have you ever really sat down and thought about why you choose to like something, especially something like a facebook page that will be in your day-to-day news feed stream?

I was reading a post on facebook from a friend’s page recently and although I may not have agreed with the entire subject matter (his belief) I liked the presentation, the underlying message (the moral ideas and wholesome choices) and the thought and style involved in the writing so I gave the post a like.  The post was on the topic of faith and what faith was to him.  For example: Faith is………  followed by Faith is…….  There was a lot of depth and thought put into each response.

Do you think that my like would symbolize that I believe the same basic idea of faith as he does? If so why does standing in agreement have to mean that you believe or ‘be’ the same thing?  I support all faiths, cultures and lifestyles given that they are peaceful in nature…. As an example I support equality for all people like the right to be gay and live a peaceful, equal life but I am not gay.

When I am determining whether I will issue a ‘like’ I base it on many things from writings style, flare, concept, humor, interest, principle, value, ethics, content, depth of thought etc.

Why do you like posts, blogs, photos?

Do you like other people’s work and pages just to get likes on your own page, blog, photo etc. or to grow your readership?  For the people that do is this ok?  Is this not the very definition of ‘social media’ and gaining exposure?

Hmmmm….

Comments, thoughts, let’s discuss…?

P.S I DO like you!

We must first understand ourselves and know what we truly want and need before we can expect another to learn how to do so with us.

Life affords us so many opportunities and chances to show the person that we love that they matter, that we need them.  That they alone can fill a place of dependence and reliance that no other can fill. Continue reading

The Descent

She fell from the branch

Tumbling on her way

To the end

Prepared for

The landing

She blew in the wind

Lifting, drifting

The wind carrying her where the wind might blow

Losing all control on where she would go Continue reading

Newton’s Cradle

Swinging to and fro

Undecided on which way to go

Pacing

Erasing every possibility of moving forward

Stuck rocking

Swaying

In place

Rythmically,

Held together by a metal brace Continue reading

It could have been me

but it’s not

The lessons I learned

I long forgot

We all have a shot at this life

No time to struggle or strife

But time to use the perspective lens

Examine those bothersome trends

Well wishes for distant friends

I take a little from there

And bring it with me here

To where I’m going to be

Life is about choices

Trying on our different voices Continue reading
