SMILE,DAMMIT

Conceit, haughtiness, egoism, feelings of superiority, excessive self-pride, overconfidence, superciliousness, self-importance and condescension are the descriptions of we whose true feelings more accurately could be labeled as sadness,  an emotion  which then threatens the hearts and minds of those in its presence.

Conceit is the opposite of pride, the enemy of dignity and the destructive force that limits friendship and destroys Love.

Pride on the other hand is an expression of Love.

A closer look at  conceit may well reveal the existence of an enormous,  secret fear  so devious as to escape detection even by the owner.

A smile however, bonds those who wear it and replaces that glimmer of bravado that says “you can’t touch me. “

Oops. you caught me talking to myself. 

Smile, dammit.

THE REST OF ME

bathroom 1 014

 

THE REST OF ME


The Rest of Me is Fearless,

The Rest of Me is Loving,

The Rest of Me is Successful,

The Rest of Me is Giving,

The Rest of Me is Forgiveness,

The Rest of Me  ignores temptation, fear and emptiness.

 To ignore The Rest of Me is like walking after sundown on an unlit street,
cursing the
crutches which support my faceless image,
the
excuses,
the
justifications,
the
incessant mutterings
and the clamor of conflict
intruding on the Beauty around me.

I need no crutches, nor do I curse them; I simply say “Yes” to The Rest of Me……..

I say “Yes” to The Rest of Me’

I ACKNOWLEDGE, I ACCEPT, I PASS IT ON

I ACKNOWLEDGE, I ACCEPT, I PASS IT ON

 

If I say “I love you very much” I must be mistaken for LOVE is UNCONDITIONAL (“very much” is a condition).

If I ask to be Loved I must be seeking mere approval for LOVE is UNCONDITIONAL . (I had to ask.)

If I accept the LOVE I acknowledge the source of that LOVE.

If I acknowledge the source of LOVE I acknowledge that THE LOVE was already in place.

I accept the LOVE and I’ll pass it on.
