Archives For My Motivational Phrase of the Day


Natural Beauty

If only you knew how beautiful you really are

No need for

make-up

plastic surgery

dental reconstruction

tummy tucks

Botox injections

or

liposuction

People can’t get to love you

If they have to peel through all the layers first

When you start to really show your age

All of what you’ve done to yourself will look twice as bad

You will have doubled your age in appearance

You’ll have

Twice the wrinkles

Twice the scars

Twice the sagging in your thighs

Your eyes will droop like sand bags

Your lips will look like rotten bananas

There will be no turning back once all of this has begun

30 years younger

Becomes 60 years older

Look for your beauty deep from within

There’s no substitution for natural beauty

The Voice of Domestic Violence: If I had a dime for every time…

You promised me you would no longer hurt me

(your hands and your words where your weapons)

You promised to spend more time with me

(Instead of you just drinking)

You made me feel like your servant

(instead of your partner)

I cried myself to sleep and you didn’t even know it

I ached all over my body, but didn’t want your pity

I wished I could turn back the clock to when we first me

You didn’t know when and how much I needed you

(the you from when we first met)

You made promises you knew you couldn’t and wouldn’t keep

You chased away everyone I loved

I wished I could be anywhere else, with anyone else

I wished I had never met you

I told myself I would leave and never look back

Well, look at me now…I left you and you didn’t see it coming

Now, I live without regret

and I have new friends that you won’t be able send away

I am thankful and grateful that I put my kids first

and me second

and kicked my baggage to the curb

If…

If you must cry, cry on my shoulder

If you must work, I’ll lend you a helping hand

If you are sick, I will care for you

If you are disabled, I will tend to you

If you are ignorant, I will teach you

If you are wealthy, Share your wealth

If you must fight, fight for a cause and not to cause pain

If you are skilled, Share your knowledge

If you can build, build for the needy

If you have a talent, nurture it and encourage others to find their own

If you have love, I will love you back and we together can love others

Love is Grand

Love is grand,

love is kind,

love has only time for those who believe in it.

So let it comfort you.

No need to feel embarrassed.

Love has no eyes,

It only has need for a sense of belonging.

Love has no color.

Love has no shape

Love has patience.

Love takes time.

Love makes time.

Love must not be left behind.

This poem was written for my friend Valerie Oberton

as she remembers her loving husband now that he is on the

other side continuing his journey with the man up above.

May my words bring you comfort and reflection on the years

you hold near and dear to you. May your memories always 

be with you.


Faith

Your darkened heart chases me

You tear at the seams of my troubled heart

You tempt me to falter from my given path

You urge me to choose the abundant gifts you offer

at the cost of my soul

You are angry because I show no interest in your temptations

My chosen path offers me the happiness I’ve dreamed of

I’ve learned that you only ask for what you need

Give all that you have to offer from the kindness of your heart

Don’t give with the hopes of rewards

Rewards are given when deserved, by those who judge you

Those who are not your peers

But by those who watch over you

If you learn all that has been taught to you

You will understand all that comes your way

Allow nothing or no-one to deter you from your path

All that is sought, will in time be in front of you

I have a vision for tomorrow …

I have a vision for tomorrow that doesn’t include violence.
It doesn’t include intimidation or a culture of brainwashing.
My vision is for individualism and free thinking people who don’t have or need to follow the destructive decisions of a smaller majority of unhappy people.
I choose to stand proud and do things that will be remembered for the good they were meant to do.
Those who bore me and those who look up to me will see the good and forgive any imperfections.
I wish to prove that good choices and good actions will be followed and will wipe out all the bad choices of others.
When I open my eyes I will see good in all people and will no longer be sad.
I have a vision….

The Beast©

◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊ ♦ ♦ ◊

Only a beast hurts without caring

No conscious for what he’s done

A laugh at the end of his task

Dripping sweat upon his victim

He laughs as the body twitches

He waits with baited breath as he hears each wailing gasp

He’s waiting for that one last breath

Before he can go on trying

To target his next victim

But to his disappointment

His victim arises

Shocked at where his strength came from

for he thought he lay there dying

Had he met his match

Maybe so

for his victim was no victim anymore

He laid down a beating on the beast

Who was no longer smiling

In fact, he began to wail

and then lay their gasping

But his only savior would come

From the ambulance that would

Carry him away to his new home

Where he surely would lose his freedom

Maybe now the beast would be tamed

or continue to get his own beating

Just as he deserves

The Mirror©

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

If you follow your heart

You might find that it has more to say

It may know you best

It just may show you the rest

Of the life that you have hoped truly existed

With your eyes wide open

Your guard down

Placing one foot in front of the other

and just taking the steps

That your heart lays out for you

There’s no rush

No time clock

No one forcing your hand

Just a choice to let your heart take the lead

No more forcing your eyes closed

No more butterflies in your stomach

No more turning back

Just accepting, trusting footsteps forward

Then maybe you’ll find a friend in me and

The love you needed for a time

The sun will shine

The clouds will lift

The rain will stop

and the birds will sing

In time for your new life to begin

Glad to have you back again

Stronger than ever before

Trying, willing and ready

to see me as I really am

The me you see every day

When you look into the mirror

Don’t forget to open your big beautiful eyes

Oh how glad I am to live once again

The Words That Get Us Through The Day

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

When we wake each morn

We wait to hear the words that you’re going to say

The words that get us through the day

We’re never sure of what to wear

How to feel

What to think or

Where to go

Until we hear those words from you

The laughter in your smile that we feel without seeing you

We picture you sitting in your comfy chair

Choosing each word so carefully

Knowing that we sit idly by waiting for their display

A sentence, a line, a phrase, a story

Anything just to get us on our way

Thank you for sharing

The words that get us through the day

Someone to Look up to

♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦ ◊ ♦

As a child I looked up to you

Curious, full of hope and admiration

You showed me a side of myself

I wasn’t willing to share

Now that I’m older

Maybe they’ll understand me

The me inside that was sheltered

But has so much to say

I’m not like the majority

But I know there are more like me

My head is full of stories that I’d love to share with you

But how do I tell you

How do I share it

I feel as though I might lose a part of me

I’ll have to find a way to let it go

To give myself a chance

To offer up a little of myself

And the past that helped me through

Thank you for watching over me

And giving me someone to look up to

That helped me through both the good and the bad
