A Poem of Perspective

Standard

Found this poem on 9gag.com. There’s no attribution, so I can’t pass that along, but this poem really speaks to me today.

Today was the absolute worst day ever

And don’t try to convince me that

There’s something good in every day

Because, when you take a closer look,

This world is a pretty evil place.

Even if

Some goodness does shine through once in a while

Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.

And it’s not true that

It’s all in the mind and heart

Because

True happiness can be obtained

Only if one’s surroundings are good

It’s not true that good exists

I’m sure you can agree that

The reality

Creates

My attitude

It’s all beyond my control

And you’ll never in a million years hear me say that

Today was a good day.

Now read it from the bottom up.

Under the Radar

Standard

I’ve been quiet lately because I’ve had a house guest. Wanted to check in long enough to at least let my loyal readers know why I’ve seemingly vanished off the face of the earth.

It’s a good visit so far and I’m establishing boundaries when I want some alone time, which is a step in the right direction for me. I’ve enjoyed the company and the occasional alone time equally.

Our guest will be here another week so I’m likely going to be flying under the radar, reading blogs when I can and posting when I’m able.

Talk to you more when I can.
