What I am grateful for? Breath.
What makes me smile? Love.

What pains me? The dissatisfaction of everyone.
What do I see? The light.
I see YOU
What do I want you to be? Your best.
What frightens me? Not doing enough.
What do I appreciate? Nature, water, trees, good and bad. The twists and turns of life.
What do I hate? I hate nothing.
What do I wish for? For everyone to be free of illusions. To ignore distractions. To live their truth. To be one with what is... To be...
What do I want more than anything??? For you to...???? It has already been done.
So I literally just followed my feelings. Sitting here, whatever questions came to mind I wrote, and whatever was the first thought as my response, I wrote that too.
It is what it is...:)
I figured I better share while I am in the mood to, this type of mood does not happen very often. I created a video awhile back to have a visual representation of what The Oprah Winfrey Show has meant to me. It is more than most could understand, but it is the truth. In the meantime....watch the video to get a greater understanding and please let me know what you think,
The other day I had a moment. I was a bit baffled and frustrated by how people act like things are great. I listen to people. Most times people either say who they really are directly to you. I remember talking to a guy, I mentioned to him that he was such a nice guy, he then told me he was not very nice. He was right. I was wrong. I saw a post on Facebook from someone speaking about their significant other. They posted a comment about how great they were. Really?? I've always believed, if things are that great, there is no need to post, flaunt, or expose that. Just simply be happy. That whole saying about sharing your happiness is a hoax. People are more likely to share themselves FAKING like they are happy. For some strange reason, human nature coaches us to act like everything is ok when clearly everything is not. When people are making bad choices, and they literally know within themselves their entire lives will suffer from it, the sad part is, they will steadily act like everything is grand. Things are not what they seem. Look at some celebrities, listen to their words, pay attention to their expressions. Society places these people on a pedestal thinking they have better lives than us "regular" people. The fact is, most of them are struggling just like the rest of us. Money, and fame does NOT make you happy. We all know that, but so many still chase it. Again, things are not what they seem. SOOOOO what is real?? Do you really think those that flaunt their marriage, relationships, and friendships, are having a blast? Probably not! Just remember, whenever someone is telling you something, nine times out of ten....the statements being made.....are not what they seem.
