Originality

Originality ~ the power of independent thought or constructive imagination

Being original is what makes each of us who we are. Sad that there are so many people in the world that are lacking in this area. They mimic and copy others and for what? Are they afraid of who they are or how they will appear to others? Is their self esteem so low that they feel like they have to be like someone else in order to have friends?

Bad Attitudes

Attitude is the crayon that colors your world.

To me there is nothing worse than being around someone who has a bad attitude all the time. It brings me down. I hate it. I know that things are rough on alot of people right now, but when you constantly complain or put others down it rains on my parade. And frankly, I have had enough rain.

Gaining Approval

Approval - What is it? What does it mean to you? Do you strive to achieve it?

While many of us will say, no, I do not care if anyone approves of what I do, what I say, or how I look, we all know deep down inside we do. Saying and acting like you don't care is just a smoke screen that you use to hide your vulnerablities. At one point in your life you find yourself changing, hiding the querks, just to gain approval from friends, relatives or everyday people we encounter. But when do you realize that you have gone too far? That you are becoming a person that you truly are not?

“Lean too much on the approval of people, and it becomes a bed of thorns”

Trust

Trust?

What does that word mean to you? What do you think it means to others? Being so very important to all relationships, just how many levels do we have? or allow? Do we as people tend to make ourselves trust others to keep from being alone? Does this mean that those that are alone trust no one?

Lack of trust ruins any relationship be it a friend, a co-worker, or a health care professional~ all of these relationships demand trust. But when is the demand too much? How much can a normal relationship withstand before it is beat to the ground? Obviously, it is less painful to change your expectations and learn to take what you are given. Specially if you are the one on the demanding end.

Some of us are lucky enough to have a few people in their lives they know they can trust. It's a gift from God and we must learn to accept it for what it is worth.

How the pieces fall

Too bad when things get tough, you just can't stand on top 0f the highest mountain and drop yourself over the edge to totally rearrange the pieces of your life. It's always the same puzzle~ it always fits right back in the same hole, no matter how many times you spin it around. You accept it how it is, or just become so familiar with the shape it takes that it all seems normal. Does it feel normal because is it what you have become to know, right or wrong? Is it normal because you make yourself believe that it is? What is normal?
