Good Morning World

Last night, I cry myself to sleep. I was pinteresting and there was this pin on my feed, about animal cruelty. A monster had nailed a sweet little angel cat to a fence. Just writing about it makes my insides churn and I can feel the tears coming back.

And then I wake up today and this what I see. The scene took my breath away. The picture hardly does any justice to the landscape. The sunshine on the grass and on the leaves giving everything a lovely golden touch… the bright autumn colours… the blue sky…

My view as I sip my delicious Colombian coffee

I hear the sound of the running water, the adorable goofy honking of the geese, the chirping of little birds, the music of our little wind chime.

I know life is difficult. For some more than others but everybody, nonetheless.

I know I am blessed. Lucky till no end. I have love. I am safe.

My heart still weeps for those who are suffering, furry and non-furry alike. My body still burns with wrath for the all injustice, the cruelty, the ugliness of this world.

But there is a soothing calm in my soul.

I will continue to bathe in the peacefulness of my surroundings, allowing myself to grow stronger so I can be the change I wish to see in the world

Life

You live

You love,  you hate

You laugh, you cry

You are happy, you are sad

You give, you receive.

You win, you lose

You worry all the while

You get drunk

You sober up

You suck the marrow of life

You make mistakes

You apologize

You learn to keep your head up

You learn from your mistakes

You learn from other people’s mistakes

You learn that life can only be lived as you walk on

You are wronged

You learn to live with it

You learn to carry on

You sing and dance

You feel joy and you feel pain

You get wrinkles and grey hairs

You grow up, you grow old

You grow wise and you grow tired

And then you learn to love again

And in the end, you learn that the most important lesson you will ever learn is to learn how to let go
