Life is a puzzle and we live each day trying to put the pieces together

Today, did i stop to smell the roses?

Did I remember to take a deep breath of appreciation?

Did I notice the beauty around me?

Did I feel the warmth of the precious sun?

Did I say hello to the ones I love and did I remind them how much I love them?

 

This day only comes once because tomorrow is not guaranteed

Hence, Today I live a life filled with thanksgiving

Today I live a life of appreciation

Today I live a life of realizing my worth

Today I live a life of making each and everyday count

 

Today I smelled the roses

Today I took a breath of appreciation

Today I took time to notice all the wonder beauty nature has to offer

Today I felt the sun warm my bare back like a mother’s embrace

Today I said hello to all my loved ones, because tomorrow is not guaranteed.

When someone shows you who they are the first time, believe them, because actions outweigh words.

Be observant and trust your instincts about people. You only live once, therefore, make sure to live a life of no regrets.

Buoyant about what awaits ahead

I courageously take the wheel

And drive into the red sunset

To fill my tank with springs of wisdom

 

I peer through my rearview mirror

And see the fragile imagery of me

Crumbling down into the heat of summer

Wiping sweat from my somber brows

 

Today I put my foot on the pedal

And accelerate to new heights

Leaving all of my yesterday

Submerged in the rearview mirror

 

I joyously sigh for relief

Suddenly sparks the realization of a utopian destiny

Where pain and hatred is foreign

But love prevails and shines like the red sunset

Waking up to yet a beautiful day

I force myself to face the day with new insights

But I feel no strength to welcome this new day

For my strength is melting away in the morning mist

Leaving me chained to my own inhibitions

 

My stomach swells with toxic fumes of inhibitions

Slowly, the toxic inhibitions shatter my world

With a loud bang that leave my self-worth dismantled

As sparks of negative energy swallow my positive thinking

 

I spurt fear, and claim the hand of courage

As I walk forth in light of content

I can see clearly and embrace my self-worth

Because I have decided to let go of all my inhibitions

 

I reject all inhibitions

I denounce finding comfort on the bathroom floor

I accept challenges of life

I free myself from all forms of inhibitions

I find my global self-worth well-balanced

And when I fall, I fall on a solid foundation

 

Inhibitions will not claim any part of me

My grip on global self-worth is what keeps me stay afloat

As I disgorge all that holds me back

And free my self by elevating my self-concept

 

 

 


 

All_the_broken_glass____by_writeitdown2908

Broken glass, broken promises

Yesterday you slipped through my figures

And came tumbling down into million pieces

Rocking my world with echoes of discontent

 

Today is a new day

Beckoning on a new tomorrow

With triumphant songs of new beginnings

Paving the way to fresh promises of the ‘morrow

 

Mending that which was once broken

And giving a new insightful look to life

Like a blooming garden

Delighting the eye with new growth

 

Broken glass

Gone with the shackles of yesterday

Kiss today with invigorating promises of tomorrow

Because today is a new day

Memorial day, is a day to remember all those who sacrificed their lives to ensure that every American enjoys the glory of freedom. But today it is no longer thought in those lines, because it has been robbed by the culture of consumerism. As the consumer industry rises, so does our fixation of shopping. It is safe to say that consumerism is yet another connotation of a terrorist, terrorizing the public with banners of for sale signs, and easily relegating the day to remember the men and women in uniforms into just another day to find bargains at the mall.

Consumerism the Grinch that robbed all the relevant holidays, it is the umbilical of shopaholics, it holds them by the ear, and every time memorial comes around the hit the road and dash to malls or online, because once you feed into consumerism then you are ensconced in its webs and it is hard to extricate from its tracks. It is true that the consumer industry has figured out how to brainwash the public by simply putting up a montage of sale signs during memorial weekend and easily drawing them from the importance of the day on hand to puppet shoppers.

Consumerism is the archetype of a recruiter whose aim is to grow the economy at all costs. Hence, turning the public into insatiable consumer monsters who always want more and are never satisfied with what they have. With that said, you need to contemplate on what is important to you on this very day, and remember to not fall victim to the web of consumerism.

What are you doing this memorial day? Will you take time out of your day and appreciate the freedom we usually take for granted and thank those who saved and died for this country? or will you just like many immense yourself with the idea of consumerism and hit the shopping centers? Whatever your ideation is, take time out of your day and be thankful for your freedom, because not everyone around the world enjoys the great freedom we normally take for granted.

I’m laying here contemplating about my day

Should I go out and meet a friend for coffee or should I stay?

It sure seems easy to cancel my appointment based on the rain

Blame the weather and stay!

 

Its raining hard, I cannot meet with you today

That’s an act of laziness, taking the easy way out

Like in life, people continue to take quick exits

They forfeit any commitments at any chance they get

They are too quick to run to the nearest exit

 

Excuses, excuses, excuses!

Pouring out of the mouth like raindrops

They flow with a certain fluidity capable of drowning oneself in a spiral of self-deception

Detonating the road to success with floods of failure

Yes, excuses are nothing but an obstruction to living a fulfilled life

 

One less excuse is an additive to a thriving life

It is a lucrative road to growth and success

It is a bundle of  joy and happiness

Live your life without excuses pulling you back

Flow with graceful currents like a body of water

Pushing currents in the right direction and make no more excuses

 

Get out there and explore, today is your tomorrow’s history

And you will look back to this day with a big smile on your face

Because it is the day you leaped over from the webs of excuses
