Beyond the SMILE,

There-Is-Always-A-Reason-To-Smile

I cannot say with Any kind of Certainty that this is even Close to what the Truth of Other People’s lives are or could be.

 

While I walk up and down during the Days or do something when and where I need to do this – I see people around me. Yes I know as well, Looking at them you Cannot ascertain for sure if they’re Happy or just what may or may NOT be going on in their lives.

 

I know for a certain FACT that you Cannot judge a Person by the Moments you see them AND what you Perceive of their Actions.

 

THUS, it’s sometimes Very Interesting for me to look around me, looking at almost Everyone walking past me. Knowing that they’d Possibly see in Me what I see in them at the same time.

 

Yet the times I see Unhappiness, Sadness or Despair in their Faces – I wonder just how Accurate I really am; Understanding that I Cannot forever always be even Close to the Possible truth, as to what these People may Feel or Think…

 

We Cannot always as well walk around with a Smile on our Faces, BUT it’s not this which I see. If that is, I’m even Seeing what is the possible Truth.

 

This Image had not Left my Mind in all of this time, knowing that for a Certain Fact that there are a Mired of People we See or Interact with, who aren’t Happy in the Least bit in their Lives. Something which very Few of us could do a thing about.

 

This doesn’t mean We’ll NOT want to help anyone we know OR that Person you see, looking as Glum as they do. You may Not be able to Spark that Happiness in their Lives or their Souls.

 

Like an Infectious Disease, when you see someone – thinking of a Baby who sees you Smiling at them; this could very Easily be the First reaction they learn from you. Smiling back at you or whoever it might be there with the Infant.

 

As long as we Live we Learn how and what to do from those around us. Not saying this is Only the bad and worse things there are out there.

But this stands fast, as we Do what Others Do and not really what they SAY to us, in doing…

 

There are Times I grant you that, when we need to be Alone in our own Thoughts and you Cannot just sit around, hoping that the Issue or Thought would Resolve itself – in this Times and Days when we’re out and about; Those times could be what I’ve seen in the People as well.

 

Yet, what I saw, was an Older woman at the specific Shopping Complex and while she walked Alone – with her Possible Age unknown, I did see that she was very Grey and suspected that she could be a Widower (no proof for this thought).

 

And while I passed her by, I saw the seriousness in her expression. Not saying she was Unhappy, but she wasn’t in a good place either.

Right after her, not ten Steps behind her – there was a young boy. Possibly Primary School and while I approached him, I could see his Expression as well.

 

From my Perspective, he didn’t look Happy in the least bit. And with the Speed which Children grow-up these days and the Number of Predators out there, Horrible situation they could be involved with – No One can ever tell me any Teenage Child couldn’t have seen Terrible bits by now in their lives…

 

There is absolutely Nothing wrong, not always Walking around with a Smile on your face. It’s just once again Something I see around me, looking at People as I do, realizing just how few times I do see Happier people themselves.

 

My belief in most Instances, for Myself, is this – I cannot say that I’m always Cheerful which for All of us would be Really difficult. And so, I believe that Forcing ourselves in being that which You’re not feeling at the time; takes a Greater Deal of Energy from you to maintain.

 

In this Regard, I’ve become a little more Straight Forward over the Years. Not only this, I hate it to Waste my time and thus, Anyone would know Exactly where they Stand with me. In doing so – I don’t waste their time either.

 

When they then Do see me, out of my Skin, I’ll have good Reason for being such a State of Euphoria. Another thing which helps me, when People see me, as Neutral as Possible, Acting Normally around them – they’d far more Revert back to their Current Internal Emotional State.

 

YES, Yes I know this sounds Funny. SO, I’m almost Hiding in Plain Sight, seeing and looking through the Looking Glass which is so Eccentric to me, Observing those around me and in this way; Learning more and more about Human behavior.

 

The ONLY thing here I really do have an ISSUE with, even though we Might NOT always want to Smile or jump out of Our Skins – I do believe that when You, Me, We Affect others Unjustly; that’s when our Personal Feelings become something to DREAD, making other People around us Unhappy as well…

 

Being Honest is good, Being Rude isn’t even Close to that!

Being Upset or Unhappy is your right,

But Willfully Affecting others because You’re not in a Good place,

That should Ring some Bells, for you to Look at yourself and Figure out what is going on,

Do NOT pull Other’s down because they’re not there…

 

It is SO easy at Pulling others Down with you,

Self-pity and wallowing in your Issue is Far Less Strain –

 

Seeing, when You’re not Positive or at least Content – Reaching there, Could be Much Harder Work in Reaching AND Maintaining this Personal Level of being…

Personal PREFERENCES…

The weekend over Father’s DAY – this Year, I had Lunch at my Sister’s place,

Between the Sisters, she’s the Youngest – yet she’s older than I am…

Between the Six siblings, we were Three there on the day.

 

It was a nice Lunch out and quit Relaxing, having a good time while I was there,

The food itself was Really nice and I enjoyed the company as well.

 

The Oldest Sister’s Kids arrived there after Lunch and we continued Chatting for some time.

Within this time I heard my Oldest Sister saying that she had to Change the Radio Station’s Channel in the Mornings when she Drove to work.

Talking about the change the Station or rather the Presenters initiated themselves, seeing they’d been working in their Spots on the Radio Station, for such a long time.

 

I was pretty Amazed that my Oldest Sister didn’t like the New Presenter,

The Very Host of the Morning Show which had Changed…

 

When I got home the Thought still stayed with me and I came to Realize that this has happened to almost ALL of us at some point,

Not that Someone you know didn’t see Eye to Eye,

But their Personal Preference differed from yours…

 

I do not care in the least bit what the Next person Likes or for that matter Dislike,

But the Issue comes when We, They or Any Others,

Like to change your Point of View or what You’d like to suit Other people’s Idea of what they believe You should like…

 

This is in fact what makes Life of Interesting,

Not ALL people are the Same and if that was the Case,

Life would have been REALLY Boring at the end of the day!

 

Over time You’re Enriched by your Experiences and if you Give that options a Chance to Test it,

OR if you Immediately see that you Dislike what the Option is,

That’s well Within Your Right to Exercise Your Personal Preference on whichever Topic You’re dealing with or facing.

 

I also must Admit that I don’t think that the New Presenter is that Terrible,

BUT – as well, I’ve listened to this Woman on the Radio for a while,

Knowing her Eccentricities by now as well.

 

I can compare this to Us watching a Brand New Movie or a TV Series,

If you’re NOT use to it and it Doesn’t Resonate with you,

It’s going to be Really hard for Us to jump into it.

 

LIFE it all about Trying New things,

AND when you’ve given it Your time,

No matter How much you do – at the End of the Day we ALL

Know what your Personal Preference would be…

 

As Long As everyone else accepts what you Like or Not,

Then things should be Pretty Okay…

 

Cadbury          vs.        Beacon Chocolate

 

Coke                vs.        Pepsi

 

Google            vs.        Bing

 

Apple              vs.        Microsoft

 

Apple              vs.        Samsung

 

Audi                vs.        VW

 

iZombie           vs.        The Walking Dead

 

There are so many, Yet I’m not going to mention all of them,

The ONLY fact we need to Understand here,

Like you’ve got Your Own Preferences,

Those around you do as well.

 

The Best we can do, Respect the Choices of those which are Different from Ours,

As they would in turn,

Respect Your Choices when they Differ from THEM…

 

All the Best with your Different Choices!

Sacrifice – WHY indeed?

635977188201285583-644510308_happiness

Who has Never been in the Position,

Wanting your Plans to work out and THEN only seeing that Possibility of something falling into place and Things able to work out…

THE Only thing You need be doing – You’ve got to Sacrifice something.

Ask Yourself this Question, How many People do you know who would Gladly do this,

Taking that Chance for their Plans to come to Fruition?

 

I’ve read a few things and on this one Website by a Screenplay Writer / Novelist, I found one of her posts –

Jeanne Veillette BOWERMAN,

Talking about the Idea of our – Fear of Success…

 

I’d read her post and the one before this one about our

Fear Of Success – which was,

10 Tips to Prepare for Opportunities When They Knock…

 

HENSE, you may ask how do these Two ideas come back to Sacrifice and Thus,

The Idea is this,

Mentioned in her Post on Fear of Success,

Is the idea that If you need to Change, reaching that Success,

You’ll have to Change…

 

The Question begs to be Asked as well,

Sacrifice your current Comfortable situation,

Sacrifice something in your Nice Life,

Change what You’re currently Use to –

Reaching what, Gaining what, Ending up Where exactly?

 

Most people may NOT be Scared of Success,

But we’re ALL Scared of Failure

AND

That’s also something Very Debilitating holding us back from Reaching for that Brilliant Change or the Opportunity of a Lifetime!

 

You may not have the Experience,

Witt,

Knowledge,

Training,

OR the Expertise – there could be So much more…

BUT

If you have the Guts to Follow the Passion which Burns in Your Heart,

That Passion will Shine through no matter what you do.

The People in the Know, Looking for Whomever it may be at the Moment You’re there to do Your thing – They may see what You cannot Imagine them to pick up on!

 

There’s Another Issue at hand here,

Not only that Fear of the Unknown and Making a Complete Ass of yourself,

BUT

Worse than that –

If You’ve become so Happy with Your Mundane situation

SO Happy that Neither You nor anyone else for that matter,

REQUIRE something MORE from You,

Then it’s a good place to stay – in that Comfort Zone and Enjoy what You’re Use too!

 

Interestingly Enough,

I’d spoken to my Oldest Sister,

Not sure if the Passion I’d felt while I’d Written various of my Fictional Works,

Would that Feeling and Idea and Heartfelt for the Character and Story shine through?

 

She told me that when she get SO caught up in any Story,

When it Interests her so Much,

When she cannot Put down whatever she’s Reading –

then at that Point, the Writer did their JOB (this is mentioning my situation).

 

When You reach this Plato I suspect,

You’d be lucky to Receive that Contract or Possible that Job or even that Raise You were Aiming at.

 

The OTHER thing here mentioned,

That Lovely thing,

Your Comfort Zone!

 

I’m Waiting to find out if I’m one of the Lucky 40

Writers, Producers, Directors or Such landing a Chance

at getting the Chance to do Something Brilliant!

 

Not ONLY this,

But I had to Change my general Idea and

JUMP out, doing something totally Different!

 

I had to come up with an; As Original Idea As Possible,

When that was Done,

I had to Write the Synopsis well enough to draw Attention

AND, from there had to Write a Comedy Piece,

Not in English as I’d Written in English Exclusively for a LONG-long time!

 

ONLY when you try will you Know if things can work out,

THUS – The Sacrifice in Reaching where I want to be,

That’s an Ongoing Plan which has Various Aspects in it,

AND I’ll be Damned if I don’t even Try!

 

AND Yes,

There’s no way in this World that it doesn’t Scare the Life out of me,

Seeing this Leap of Faith may be Much BIGGER than I’d expect it to be,

BUT

Not doing it,

Not taking the Chance,

Not throwing my Name in there…

What would I Say at the end of the Day,

When I allow this Possible Opportunity to Slip through my Fingers…?

 

What would be Worse,

In another Year I’d wonder why I didn’t do it?

How many Years would have to go by, before You seriously ask yourself,

What was the Worse that could happen?

 

Sacrifice Your Calm,

Comfortable,

Relaxing,

Comfort Zone for the

ADVENTURE of a Lifetime?

 

They don’t say,

A Leap of Faith for nothing –

Only After You Leap would you WORK your Rear off to Make it Work for You!

Too ACTIVE for Our Own GOOD!

home-smooth-and-relax

This last week I’ve been running at Work so hard,

My Mind had not really Settled when I got home and

There’s just so much time which Passes before We do it all over again!

 

I’ve been so Busy with what I had to do,

I’ve not even THOUGHT about something to put up on this Post…

That’s saying FAR too much actually!

 

Then I once more Heard this song and I’d understand just how Important this is,

Even though we may be Really Busy during the day or the week;

It is an ABSOLUTE need for us to Try and switch off after you Finished work!

 

I Believe that this isn’t as Easy as I may write here

OR

That we do try to reach that Point of Relaxation,

Seeing there’s Far Too much happening around us!

 

You’ve got a Life at Home beyond Your work and

When you’ve got a Partner, Wife, Husband AND Kids,

All of them need some of Your Time and Attention…

 

We cannot Make the Mistake in Deprive them from that,

BUT,

One thing I’ve come to Realize the Past week,

IF you can Create Yourself a Rhythm when You arrive home

AND

You do explain this to those around you,

THIS can help you Relax and You can help them Out Far more Effectively than what You’d have done if you didn’t Relax.

 

A Warm Bath

OR

Having that nice Glass of Wine

OR

I’d love my Cup of Coffee

AND

Then I do Truly Enjoy Listening to that Song

OR
Music in general which put you in the Phase to Relax…

 

My Latest Singer / Songwriter I’ve found

OR

Picked up from the TV Series – Suits,

Sharon Van Etten…

AND the Song I cannot get Enough of,

LISTENED to it while I was Getting this Post done…

“People Ain’t No Good”

The Suits TV Series Song,

“Pay My Debts”

 

The FACT of the Matter is,

I watch a Great Deal of TV Series,

THOSE which I really Enjoy I can Start from Season ONE

If I do have them and ENJOY watching them again.

 

IF not then I do Watch many a Movie,

As well as NEED the Sounds of Soul in my Ears when I do write…

WHY I’m telling you this,

YOU Cannot Relax and Find Yourself before the Next workday,

If You don’t know HOW to truly Relax Yourself and KNOW

What would work for you…

 

I’ve Mentioned this before,

But with the Week being SO Hectic for me,

Relaxation is Far more Important that Any of Us can easily believe.

 

Whatever you Need to do,

When You’re in a Better Spot,

Then those around you Who would NEED that as well,

You can Cope better at Helping them out as well…

 

Take the time to Help Yourself and then,

Take the time in Helping Them as well.

That UNYIELDING Support…

the-power-of-positivity

I Recently heard from a VERY POSITIVE person,

Having Seen and Heard, how Others Perceive this Person as being Upbeat and Positive,

Which is a Really Cool and Refreshing Idea and Thought…

 

So this Lead me to Wonder,

If and when that Person needs a Pick-Me-Up,

Where exactly do We Usually go to get that Kind of Positive Injection?

 

Then Yet another question hit me as well,

Wherever They did get that Injection or Recharge of Positivity;

How does this Person or Place or Situation get Themselves, Itself or Whichever it may be –

Charged so Positively as well?

 

It makes me Think of Our Cellular-phones,

With the Technology out there,

You can Charge an External Battery and then when You need it,

Charge your phone so that it get a Boost when you need the Phone’s battery to Last even longer…

 

Thus it Stands to Reason,

As with Batteries and US, We need to Replenish almost Everything in Our Lives –

That Continuous Recurring Event…

AND so, the very same Question;

Wherever You, Me, They go to – Getting that Much-needed Boost in whichever Way we need it,

That Person, Place, Situation…

Where do THEY get their Positivity Replenished?

 

This Might not be as Big an Issue as I suspect it could be,

BUT, there’s the Rub as well;

Like in our Natural Resources –

We as a Species Continually USE and Take almost everything for Granted,

BUT, do we Really think of more than just Ourselves?

 

Positivity can probably be found; in Today’s Day in Age; within various areas and means.

As I mentioned, there are Those Positive influences around us;

And it’s just here where We mostly DON’T see the Issue and Problem,

OVER Using that Resource could also Corrupt it…

 

We can Use a variety of Actions in Boosting ourselves;

Yoga

Meditation

Spending time with Family / Friends

Going to Church

Relaxing with a Good Book or Movie

Having a Good rest / sleep

 

It doesn’t really Matter what we Do or Need to do,

As long as You’re Weighing down that Positive Aspect of your life,

You, Me, We could Miss-use that Lucky Instrument.

 

In MOST of the Movies and Series, I’ve seen and had Obviously come to Realize – Other’s cannot Make us Happy,

They can ONLY assist in Your Happiness.

 

If we cannot See, Know or Understand what makes Us Happy – Positive toward our Own lives,

How can Another; pull you Up from that Place, Spot, Position where we’re Stuck in Despair and HOPE they’d know how to Help US out of it,

If you cannot even See the Positivity of Our Own Lives ourselves?

 

Thus, there’s another Thought;

You

Me

We may have that Lucky Penny (Six Pins None The Richer) which can Help us in getting over that Normal Human emotion of Despair – Unhappiness;

BUT Always look beyond Yourself as well,

However you do Reach that Positive Plato,

Remember how you got there and Understand,

There’s only So much We can Absorb or Take or Borrow from Another place,

 

Seeing that This place of Goodness, Happiness, Positivity, Lucky, Optimism also needs to Replenish themselves, itself and however you’re at.

 

Not to say it’ll be Okay to use it once in a while,

But it’s also a Common aspect of Humanity –

We Regularly forget that Other’s need this Positivity themselves,

Even if they do Help you, me, us;

 

No one is a Rock all of the time.

Consider Others’ as well…

The Sweet Smell of SENSES.

rain

With Us having a Drought over the last few Months,

The difference with the RAIN we’ve been Having the last few weeks,

Was FAR Better than most People would have thought before all of this!

 

While I was either on my way Home or at Home already,

I cannot tell you right now…

ALL I can Really Remember WELL – was that Smell!

 

YES,

I caught the Smell of the Coming Rain for the Night.

It felt Toxic in a Good way!

Especially when it was Gone for such a LONG-Long time!

 

HERE again, another Thought hit me;

When I was a Little One,

First You’d smell the Rain – that Freshness to come, in the Air.

 

BUT then, after that had happened;

HOW many other times did you Smell something interesting,

Good, Clean, Healthy?

 

What I can Remember as a Child,

When the Rains had subsided –

I’d also LOVE the Smell that I got from the Soil or Ground,

Especially when it had just stopped Raining…

 

When that Clean water had just Soaked the ground,

Just after it had just dropped below the surface and the Ground itself smelling Fresh!

 

IN this way as well,

I can remember at times when you Smell the Aroma of Freshly cut Grass,

Something which had grown naturally or was Healthy as well.

The Grass just got some different kind of Smell,

NOT even talking about the Smell you get from it After it had Rained.

 

Yet, that would also be a Different smell altogether…

The Just cut Grass had got a different smell to it again.

 

THIS led me to the Thought,

Many times over we See or Hear a Character speak on the Telly

OR in a Movie about the Correlation between what we Sense and our Memories.

 

This might be a FUNNY one,

When you had just Eaten and THEN smell the aroma of a JUST baked Bread,

Warm and Fresh… Makes you Crave it even though You weren’t Hungry!

 

Whenever we See, Hear or Smell – Touch doesn’t play that much a Great part,

But it does…

Yet again, is and when these Senses Trigger together;

Imagine the Multitude of Memories which are Connected with Our Senses and Just where they may take us at Any given moment.

 

Enjoy Your Senses,

Make the Most of the Memories which comes with them,

AND

Enjoying sharing all of this with Everyone You may come across!

JINGLE all the Way!

Here we are Once agian;

It’s Christmas and IRONICALLY,

It’s only here Now this time in the Morning I’ve got a Different Thought, Idea which I’d be posting today.

 

YES,

So many people all over are Still working OR have something More to Sort out OR Deal with, for Themselves OR Work.

 

This isn’t Work for me,

As I’m not being Paid to do this,

AND I do enjoy getting the Various Ideas, Thoughts or Ramblings out of my Mind…

 

Now in Question,

At this time,

“The Silly Season” – Christmas Season,

Over THIS time of the Year, you See and Hear of So many indifferences…

 

That’s Unfortunately – US being who we are!

So much we want to do,

So much we Try and arrange, Spending the Time with each other
AND then,

Some of the Times;

Those Unnecessary ARGUMENTS!

 

I’m not getting in on ANY of them,

As there’s so Many it’s not even Funny…

Especially over this time of the Year!

 

All of this ONLY stops after New Years,

Seeing that it’s As well a BIG deal for Most people

AND so, only After all of it’s Over and Done;

Do most People – Families move on…

 

So here it is then,

We’ve got SO Little time,

We cannot even Grasp when it’ll be Done,

YET – when we do have Time spending it with Family

AND

Friends which are Family after all this time –

We Waste it on Frivolous senseless things!

 

This time of the Year is there for ALL to enjoy the time,

The Blessing and the Joy – however, you can see it.

Take this time and Use it to the Best of Your ability!

 

MERRY Christmas!
