Maturity Is So Many Things

Maturity is changing, evolving, being responsible, taking care of yourself and others. It is listening, handling pressure, transitioning, regenerating and caring. It’s not not buying into drama but enjoying the drama that comes with change. Admitting you make mistakes and owning up to them. It is respecting people for who they are and who they will become. Meet the fear of maturity with strength and courage.

Grief Is Like Spaghetti

Grief I have found is like spaghetti. There is a whole lot going on with a plate full and you don’t know which strands to start with first. What I mean by that is every strand is a different issue in your grieving whether it be the loss of a loved one or a friend. The size pile could represent how many years where you in each others lives. There is also on what terms did you leave things when they departed. How the spaghetti tastes could be how much you enjoyed your time together because delicious spaghetti is something you like to have all the time.

How big of a bite of this plate full of issues are you going to take and does it all make sense. This is what I am dealing with is how do I address all of it. One bite at a time makes the most sense but there is frustration and how do you cope with it.

The picture above is plain spaghetti it’s when you add sauce and cheese is when it could become something different indeed. I hope this all makes sense.

Keeping Your Sense Of Humor

Laughter they say is the best medicine. I need to remember this as my family cares for my dad who is sick. Humor can be a good cathartic release to help you deal with the seriousness of the moment. As time marches on and things get tougher you will need to remember to have a positive release and a good laugh can help. With that being said I will post more of what I usually write about and include some things to make you chuckle.

It’s A Monday…

I am not sure what to write about it being Monday today. The blogging spirit is alive in me but the words aren’t flowing. Once I figure it out I will be sure to let you know.

Be kind, be good, be yourselves no matter what this Monday brings your way. While you are at it hold those closest to you closer today and every day. Tomorrow is always uncertain.

Surviving The Moment, Looking To The Next

Making it minute by minute just to survive one thing to another is the rule of the day. Whether it be your own situations or those you love and care about. Everyone is going through something today if they could just make it through tomorrow is a possibility. Struggle, suffering, life are all things we must endure at one time in our lives and we must see that play out in the lives of people who we love. The grownup thing is to face it but if you are like me hiding my head in sand to avoid the reality of the moment is what we want to do most. Courage is the call of the day. If we can just get through the night we can see tomorrow and hopefully realize the possibilities of that day.

Survive the moment so one can look to the next.

You Haven’t Written Anything Yet

This popped up on my WordPress composer and it got me to thinking about writing something. Is writing nothing sometimes better than writing something just to write something. This very post could be described as just posting for the sake of posting. However writing is a sacred thing to many and quality of posts are better than quantity.

It is amazing what can inspire you to write about like this notification. Interesting.

Then there is this where WordPress is encouraging its members to keep on blogging. A philosophy I can get behind.
