My thoughts and prayers are with ALL in Boston today. Another senseless act of terror was committed and it’s heart breaking. When will we be able to come together as one and be at peace? I fear for my niece, nephews, god child, and the children of my loved ones and friends. They are growing up in a world full of anger and hate. Why, why why!? I fear of what’s to come if things don’t change.
I pray for a world full of love and laughter.
I pray for a world with no judgements.
I pray for a world with no hate.
I pray for a world where you are accepted regardless of color or race.
I pray for a world where we ALL can get along.
I shall not live in fear thinking about these senseless acts of terror nor should anyone else. Live your life to the fullest. Be kind to everyone you meet. Be less judging and more accepting. Don’t hate. Fill your heart with love. Forgive and forget. Life is too short.
Who knew that my words would have such an impact? A couple of days ago my life was the vocal focus of some people and I got wind of it. Gossip travels at lightning speed. After being almost electrocuted I did what I do best… I took my thoughts and wrote them on Facebook and it even inspired the quick rant [Sick and tired…]. Needless to say, it struck a nerve for some. Feeling guilty? Must be if they are reacting defensively, wouldn’t you agree?
Words are some of the most powerful and important things I know… Language is the tool of love and the weapon of hatred. It’s the bright red warning flag of danger – and the stone foundation of diplomacy and peace.
I hate when I hear friends say, “I’m an owner of a business and you take more time off than I do.” Seriously!?
Listen up folks, everyone lives the life they want. If you are an owner of a successful business and choose not to take time off, then you need to take a step back and re-organize within your structure. It’s no ones fault that you don’t have time for vacation. Words of advice: When you die, your casket will not be filled with the money you were saving for a rainy day. Enjoy your life NOW. Have some fun and enjoy the fruits of your labor. During the process, always remember to LIVE AND LET LIVE!
Have you ever had one of those moments when you wish you didn’t feel anything at all? I know it’s an awful thought but that’s exactly how I felt last night. I think I was browsing my FB news feed when all of a sudden I felt sad and empty. Perhaps it was something I read or saw but it affected me. At that very moment, I wished I didn’t feel anything at all. So many thoughts flooded my mind… the past, present, and future.
There are moments in life, when the heart is so full of emotion That if by chance it be shaken, or into its depths like a pebble Drops some careless word, it overflows, and its secret, Spilt on the ground like water, can never be gathered together.
Although I wished it, I can’t imagine my life not being able to feel anything. Can you? People think because I’m a tough cookie and strong-willed that I don’t hurt inside. When people hurt you one too many times, the walls are built six feet tall and made of cement.
Guess what people, Melissa, does hurt inside. I know too well, the feelings of disappointment. Feelings of rejection. Feelings of betrayal. Feelings of hurt. Feelings of emptiness. Feelings of crying my eyes out for hours. I feel every emotion, I just show it differently that’s all.
How would life be if we didn’t feel anything? It would definitely be lifeless. We would all look like zombies with blank expressions on our faces. Our emotions define us. Some people are more expressive and emotional, and others just have walls built but they are still gentle creatures on the inside.
It’s these moments that make you take a step back and look at the whole picture.
