Musings of Mine #6
Quote of the day:
It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters. -Epictetus
1. I'm Not Strong Enough
A scene played out at a fast food restaurant the other day. Right outside the parking lot, two women stood toe to toe arguing, and within seconds it descended into a full blown fight -with lots of hair pulling and scratching. I happened to be walking on the other side of the street going to this same restaurant, and so I quickened my pace, jogging across the street to try in order to intervene, On getting there, another gentleman also stepped in at the same time, some were were busy filming, including a couple in a car behind. We managed to pull them apart...one of the women had kids in the car. I asked two men nearby why they hadn't stepped forward seeing as they were close enough to help stop the fight.
"I'm not strong enough," said the first fellow.
"I didn't want to get my hands cold," said the other.
2. I Think the Plants and Trees are Confused
The weather confuses the plants and trees. To grow or not to grow? To push through the soil, or wait longer? One week its warm, the next its chilly. Blooming daffodils, sprouting plants and whatnot. Tricking flowers to put on Spring displays. Well played weather, well played.
3. Who Am I?
Daily, a thousand and one thoughts cross over fields of various minds. They build up, crash, and evolve. Every thought has a corresponding feeling. The things that you think about the most- more often than not define your true self. Bring to life great thoughts.
Peace. Love. Light*
