Let's keep things in perspective!

My daughter is now pulling herself up to standing position on her own at 7 months of age.

My son is now making his own oatmeal to perfect consistency and temperature at not quite 5.

Our finances hang by an unfurling thread.

Our credit is on the brink of revealing the tensioning beneath a meaningless rating.

Our shower still has a slow drip after spending $50 we didn’t have on a replacement part that wasn’t necessary.

My work shoes have worn to holes along the bottom, but still shine up fair enough for show.

My wardrobe consists of more tatters than not.

I’m on my 5th use of a double-blade disposable razor.

We spend almost every non-bill dollar on organic, non-GMO food.

I refuse to watch mainstream news, even for the weather.

My son reads at a 3rd-4th grade level at four years of age.

Government shutdown?

I guess there is just too much going on in my life that outweighs the belligerency and criminality of puppet-heads perpetuating their puppet-deeds.

“Hey Politickers! When you’re through with this Act, please know that you have done everything in your power to eradicate any remnant of trust the people may have had for you, with the EXCEPTION of removing the word TRUST from the dictionary altogether.

You are becoming functionally irrelevant by the examples you set and the justifications you pronounce.

Peace and Love always.

I found life to be peaks, valleys and platues.. what goes up will come down, and the trick seems to find some comfortable platue, not too high up, nor too low down, but one where we can "sustain, and have faith, and the hope to thrive, spiritually, physically, and mentally.

Perspective is like a kalidescope, each second turning the shape and colors.

I find your life challenges and experiences something you can be proud of, even theme, to produce cards, coloring books, means for others who can relate at this time (and future) to lift you to the next experience you dream.

You've got the talent, and are so blessed, it seems to me that this temorary space you are witnessing is an opportunity in the raw, like mud, and you are the potter who was born to produce a remarkable vessle because LOVE is your foundation.

Make a wish.. it will come true..you are ready and reading your post.. I feel it.. life wants to bless you constantly and abundantly.. so go for it.. start being that dream on the next level.

I've always known

I had a natural connection with words and music, but my biggest obstacle is how to make a living doing it.

I have thought about opening a Paypal account and offering my writing services for a small price as dedication poems...just one of the thoughts circling my mind.
