My Happy Place

When I write,
I’m in my happy place
A place where I’m returning to
the most purest spot in my soul
Everyday I always return
to the place where the best things are
I may not be the most
talented, creative or eloquent writer
but my passion
to get my words out onto paper
just makes
my love for this craft
stronger
Writing elevates
my mind, body and soul
It takes me to another level
of complete joy
I’m able to go to a place
where I create things
not only with my words
but with
my heart,
my soul,
my true inner voice.

Mid-Life Reflections #12

When I was younger, I’ve felt like I was never successful in all of my life. It’s mainly because I was an indecisive person who worried too much. I wandered around but could never break out of my little world. I used to make ambitious plans during the night but continued to grumble about my daily grind the next morning. It got to the point that I was fed up with my place in life and decided that I needed to make a change. I wasn’t going to wait for the next day, I needed to act immediately. I made a commitment to to stay focused on whatever endeavors I pursued, maintained my demeanor of perseverance and became eternally optimistic in everything. In short, I learned that it all starts with you. If you don’t like something, do something about it. Make a change in your life, “you” need to be the one to initiate it. Don’t wait for tomorrow or possible things that may happen. Do something about it. Dream big, there’s no limit to your potential. It’s your life, live it the way you would like it to be. Start now and make a change for the better.

Be The Multiplier

Helping is a multiplying force.  It’s a contagious virus that will compel one to infect others with it.  There are no words to describe that sense of self satisfaction from aiding someone whether it’s asked for or unsolicited.   It could be a grandiose gesture or a small deed, but the feeling you get from assisting someone is very rewarding.  And the recipient has an air of deep gratitude; their appreciation is truly genuine because it comes from within. Some may even be inspired to do the same for a family member, a friend, an acquaintance or a stranger.  They in turn may render assistance for others as well.  That’s the multiplying effect.  It doesn’t take much to help someone, you just need to be willing to take the first step and spread some positivity.  So what are you waiting for, do some good because helping is truly a multiplying force.
