Independence Day

4th of July Fireworks

Every day is Independence Day for us grown-ups.

We must earn a living,

Care for ourselves and our family,

Take care of our homes, our pets, our cars,

And strive to be as independent as possible . . .

Because so many of us live so far away from our parents, our siblings, and friends.

So celebrate every day as Independence Day

Because you are Mr., Mrs. or Ms. Independent

Not just on the 4th of July,

But every day!

And that’s worth celebrating!!!!

You Decide

Paper AirplaneYou are the maker of the folds in your life.

You decide whether take off and give it a try

Or whether to remain grounded.

Do your homework.

Examine your options carefully.

Decide after careful planning and consideration

Which way to fold the fabric of your life

For you are the maker of your destiny.

Examine

 

Pretty Purple Weed 2

Examine your day every day.

Ask yourself: Did I do my level best?

If you can’t answer, “yes,”

Keep working at it . . .

Eventually, the answer will be:

YES!

Humble Pie

Humble PieMy patients humble me

Each and every day

As they share their life stories

In oh so many ways.

Each story more amazing

Than I could have ever guessed,

Each one makes me realize

That we all need to confess

The troubles that we go through

Each and every day

Are what is most meaningful

In oh so many ways.

Those challenges that we get through

Nurture and grow our souls,

They humble our inner egos

And remind us we only think we’re in control.

For the journey is what builds us

Into the human being we eventually come to know.

While we bite off that humble pie

And figure out which way to grow

The Value of Meaning

Nation of Change

It was a good day.

It was a bad day.

It was a good year.

It was a bad year.

There is meaning

in every day,

in every year,

whether good or bad;

lessons to be learned,

not to be forgotten,

to be used

to strengthen

and heal.

There is value.

All we need do

is seek it,

value it,

and grow from it, with it;

and recognize its meaning

and our meaning

in the here, the now,

and strive to be our best self

because of it all.

The Happiness Career

 

Happiness career

If we all were to make striving for happiness our life’s career,

Our occupation would become as irrelevant as gum on the bottom of our shoe,

Because whether we love or hate our job,

Our lifetime career goal of

Happiness

Will carry us through any and everything.

Hands

Hands

Hands are

For holding

For hugging

For working

For playing

And doing good deeds.

Take good care of them,

For they are wondrous tools.

Never take them for granted,

For one day, they may no longer do what you want and need them to.
