No Need For Your Eyes

Quote of the day:
We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another- Jonathan Swift

I don't need your consent.
To live.
And be whatever i want to be.

I don't need your heart.
To beat.
To enable me to breathe.

I don't need your eyes.
To seek.
In life all that I want to be.

I don't need your voice.
To shout.
I can do my thinking aloud.

I don't need your tears.
To fall.
Even clouds cry after all.

I do not need you anymore.
I realized.
I've got no more need for your eyes.

Hope y'all are having a great week.
Peace & Love!

The Art of Contentment

Quote of the day:

Truth is a deep kindness that teaches us to be content in our everyday life and share with the people the same happiness.
-Kahlil Gibran

Five years ago today...

I wonder if you can recall exactly what clothes you had on, what mood you were in, what day of the month it was, and how many problems you faced...and if you were either happy or sad.

Truth be told, i can't recall anything myself. Five years ago...seems just like a century ago.

I guess the point i am trying to make is this...the little time you have right now is so special...don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Because five years from now, some of the things, passions, emotions, dreams,and other stuff that's weighing you down- would not really matter any longer.

Truth is we need to be more content in our daily lives. Sometimes we spend more time worrying than actually living...caring...loving.

Worry less. Share happiness with people that you come across-because truth be told it helps a great deal. Happiness helps. It has occurred to me that making people happy also rubs off on you too. Surrounding yourself with happy people-makes life easier to live through.

Remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for. Happiness is not getting what you don't have -but appreciating the things that you have.

You alone can decide if you want to be happy or sad. Think about it!

Peace & Love*

Too Busy To Live

Quote of the day:
Balance is so important in our lives. In our busy world, we can give ourselves balance between thinking and feeling.
Yakov Smirnoff

We think too much about ourselves sometimes to even bother about other people out there.

We spend a lot of time thinking about what to wear, and how to wear it. About what time to get out of the house in the morning, about how to get to wherever it is that we might be headed to. We think too much about everything that affects us...and so little about things or people that we affect...

When was the last time you picked up your phone-not to chat or play games, but to have a really good conversation with an old time friend, family member or a new friend you just made?

People oftentimes say that they are too busy- with whatever it is they have going on. But how busy can one person get? Are we too busy to have a life...or just too lazy to make an effort i sometimes wonder...

A friend was telling me the other day about the fact that she was always so busy-that she didn't have time for her friends. And i asked her 'busy doing what'?

For a few seconds she went on about being occupied with this and that...while i looked on. Asides going to work-and even closing earlier than most folks, she could not point out what exactly she used the remainder of her time for-but yet she kept telling the people close to her that she was always too busy!

I'm not saying don't be busy...just that there should be a balance somewhere...

Don't be too busy watching out for what is ahead of you, that you don't take time to enjoy where you are...

So next time you tell people that you are always busy, be ready with an answer when they ask 'busy doing what'?

Peace & Love*

How Do I Know

Quote of the day:
How do you know if your mission in life is finished?
If you're still alive, it isn't.
-Richard Bach

How do i know you are the one.
Amongst so many.

How do i know when to approach.
At what point if any.

How do i know when to speak.
My heart feels so heavy.

How do i know when to be carefree.
With or without you near me.

How do i know when to face you squarely.
While stealing kisses aplenty.

How do i know....

Have a nice week folks!
